Today's Card ...   Frank Gifford  --- 1960


                                                                             November 21-23, 2014   

While the Yankees shared their stadium
with the footballing Giants, icons Frank
Gifford and Mickey Mantle shared the same
locker.

Coincidence or not?

















Editor’s Note: Gifford would score 77
touchdowns as a halfback and flanker
during his 12-year NFL career spent
entirely with the Giants. His tosses would
find the end zone on 14 occasions, as we
can see in his ’60 cardboard that he was
proud of his arm. The 8-time Pro Bowler
would be enshrined in the Football Hall of
Fame in 1977. The shared locker note

Jeffrey Lyons and Douglas B. Lyons.
