OTTO GRAHAM (1921-2003, HOF 1965) earned greater fame as quarterback of the Cleveland Browns, leading them to seven league titles in ten years (1946-1955. He was the National Football League MVP twice (1953, 1955), and the youngest ever inductee into the Football Hall of Fame. JIM TAYLOR (HOF 1976) was a 1,000-yard rusher for five straight years (1960-1964) for the Green Bay Packers. In his career, he has rushed for 8597 yards, caught 225 passes, amassed 10,538 combined net yards and scored 558 points. Taylor led the NFL in rushers and scorers, and had a record 19 TDs in 1962. He was a ferocious runner, rugged blocker and a prime disciple of the "run to daylight" doctrine. A basketball All-American at Northwestern, As cornerbacks go, no player in NFL history instilled more fear in wide receivers or running backs than DICK "NIGHT TRAIN" LANE (1928-2002, HOF 1974) He burst onto the NFL scene in 1952 by setting a record for most interceptions in a single season: 14. Accomplished when the NFL played only a 12-game regular season, this record still stands today. Lane also ranks 3rd all-time for career interceptions with 68. In 1969, just 4 years after his retirement, Lane was voted the best cornerback in the first 50 years of the NFL. Norwegian JAN STENERUD (HOF 1991) entered college on a skiing scholarship. The first pure place kicker to enter the Hall of Fame, he starred for the Kansas City Chiefs (1967-1979) before finishing his career with five seasons with Minnesota and Green Bay. Stenerud kicked 373 career field goals, 17 of them from 50 yards or more. He kicked 3 field goals, the first nine points of the game, in Kansas City's upset victory over the Vikings in Super Bowl IV. CHUCK BEDNARIK (HOF 1967) was selected first overall in the 1949 NFL Draft as the Eagles' bonus draft choice and earned a starter's spot as a center on offense and linebacker on defense. As an offensive center, big Chuck was a bulldozing blocker, both on rushing and passing plays. On defense, he was a true scientist in his field and the kind of tackler who could literally stop even the finest enemy runners "on a dime." He was named All-NFL as a linebacker 1951 through 1957 and again in 1960. Wide receiver DON MAYNARD (HOF 1987), the first signee of the 1960 AFL Titans, caught a career-high 72 passes during his first season. Maynard, who played in three AFL All-Star games, later teamed with Joe Namath on the New York Jets to form a dynamic pass-catch duo. During his career, Maynard racked up 633 receptions for 11,834 yards, 88 touchdowns and 530 points. Wide receiver PAUL WARFIELD (HOF 1983) played for the Miami Dolphins from 1970-1974, playing a key role in the Dolphins' undefeated (17-0) season in 1972. A graduate of Ohio State, Warfield began his pro career with the Cleveland Browns (1964-1969), and he would return to that team to finish his career (1976-1977). Known for his speed and jumping ability, Warfield caught 427 passes for 8,565 yards and 85 TDs over his 13-season NFL career. He was also a member of eight Pro-Bowl teams, and Warfield was chosen for the NFL 1970s All-Decade Team. Wide receiver TOM FEARS (1922-2000, HOF 1970) played his college ball at UCLA, before joining the pros in 1948. In his first three years with the Los Angeles Rams, Fears led the NFL in catches. He played until 1956, although his last three years were plagued with injuries. Fears was enshrined in the Hall of Fame in 1970. He was head coach of the New Orleans Saints (1967-1970), but claimed he was blacklisted from the NFL after serving as a consultant to the film North Dallas Forty (1979), which stressed the seamy side of professional football. He later coached in the US Football League and for the Milan franchise in the first season of the International League of American Football (1990). Fine condition.
