Gellman from Sports Cards Uncensored is running a contest with a box of Topps Five Star Football as the prize. The question he asks is to tell about our favorite Topps football card.
Without even thinking about it I can tell you that my favorite Topps football card above all is my 1987 Topps Doug Flutie, card #45. There are a number of reasons why this stands amongst my favorites; I have liked the guy since his USFL days, the 1987 Topps football set was the first set I ever completed, this card is Flutie’s RC and the main reason I like him is because he was the underdog. He was not supposed to be a star, he was not supposed to really even be playing professional football but he proved everyone wrong over a very long, 20 years, career. His determination and resourcefulness more than made up for his size.
