Leather Helmets and Art, Pt. II

Bill Dudley, the manliest of men.

The back of this card isn’t big enough to note all of the amazing things Mr. Dudley was able to accomplish in his 9 year NFL career.  Three of which were spent as a Washington Redskin.  In his impressive NFL stint, he was quite the scoring machine and was able to put points on the board from defense, offense and special teams.  Nobody does that.  According to wikipedia, he is the only player to score a touchdown by rushing, receiving, throwing as well as a punt return, kickoff return, interception return, fumble return, a lateral pass AND kicked field goals and the soon to be obsolete PAT’s.

Holy crap!

If only he could have gotten that elusive safety!

Mr. Dudley also served in the military for three years defending our freedom from evil doers.  After his playing career he ventured in to politics, because being a great football player, joining the military and being elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame just wasn’t enough.  This isn’t a politics blog, so i’m not going to get in to all of that stuff.  I really just want to show off this beautiful card.

Look at those clouds! Look at the bold border around his shoulders and head.  Just look at it!

Part III coming soon!
