Classic Sports Card of The Day

26 Jan

1977 Topps football card of former pro football wide receiver John Holland, who had a brief 4 year career in the NFL, with 3 of those seasons coming with the Buffalo Bills. Topps didn’t have exclusive rights to the NFL that year, hence the missing logo air-brushed off of Holland’s helmet. Also, apparently he played in an era when receiver gloves looked like the same ones a steelworker might wear. His shining moment came in a Monday Night game in which he caught a pair of 50+ yard touchdown passes for Buffalo. Holland finished his career with another 4 years in the CFL for 3 different clubs.
