One of the favorite cards of my entire collection is my GAI graded 1968 Topps Lance Alworth card. It only graded as a 7.5 on the GAI scale (Near Mint+), so it’s not terribly valuable. However I just think this is one of the most visually appealing in my entire collection. It’s a well designed card and the colors just catch the eye. No wonder Chris Berman called the Chargers throwbacks the best uniform of all time.

I’m too young to remember Lance Alworth, but the numbers he put up are simply amazing. Especially when you consider that back in the day, wide receivers were constantly mugged. The pass interference rules didn’t quite favor the offense as it does today.
