Classic Sports Card of The Day

23 Apr

1973 Topps football card of former pro football defensive end Al Cowlings, who played 10 seasons of pro ball, 9 in the NFL, with 5 franchises. A top pick of the Buffalo Bills, he flamed out there after 3 years and drifted around the league for the rest of his years. They included a season in the Canadian League with Montreal in 1978. Cowlings dabbled in acting for a brief period after retiring as a player, but his claim to fame was unfortunate, as he was best friend O.J. Simpson’s driver in the slow-speed police chase that ended in Simpson’s arrest for murder in 1995.
