BUDDY YOUNG
The first Baltimore Colt to have his jersey retired signs, "Best Regards" on a card bearing his photo.
Autograph sentiment signed: "Best regards Buddy Young", in black ink, 5x3 card. His small photo is affixed to lower right edge (2 surfaces). Buddy Young (1926-1983) excelled at track and football at the University of Illinois. He was NCAA champion in the 100- and 220-yard dash. He played football for the US Navy during World War II, and then - turning down other offers, returned to lead Illinois to a Rose Bowl victory in 1947. He played pro football from 1947 to 1955, ending up with the Baltimore Colts and gaining over 1,000 (passing and rushing combined) 5 times. He won a footrace against the horse serving as Colts mascot. He was the first Colt to have his number retired, and the first African-American executive in the NFL (Director of Player Relations for the Colts, 1966). Young died in an auto accident. His small photo is affixed to lower right edge (2 surfaces). Pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso. Otherwise fine condition.
