Classic Sports Card of The Day

10 Dec

1984 Topps football card of former pro football running back John Riggins, who enjoyed a long 15 career in the NFL with the New York Jets and Washington Redskins. Inexplicably he was only named to the Pro Bowl once in his career. He was NFL Comeback Player of The Year in 1978 and MVP of Super Bowl XVII when he led the Redskins to a win in the big game against Miami. Nicknamed “The Diesel”, Riggins was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1992. He has dabbled in acting and sports commentating in his later life, including doing color analysis for Sunday Night Football radio broadcasts on Westwood One.
