06 Feb

1974 Topps football card of former pro football quarterback Roger Staubach, who enjoyed a stellar 11 year career in the NFL with the Dallas Cowboys. After winning the Heisman Trophy at Navy and serving his 4 year military commitment, he joined the Cowboys and led them to 4 Super Bowls, winning a pair. “Captain America” was a six-time Pro Bowler, Super Bowl VI MVP, NFL Man of The Year in 1978, and was voted to the NFL Team of The Decade for the 1970s and the NFL’s 100th Anniversary All Time team. He was also dubbed “Captain Comeback” for his many come-from-behind victories, and his late game throw against the Vikings in the playoffs was the first to be coined a “Hail Mary”. Also known as “Roger The Dodger”, Staubach was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1985.
