With football season fast approaching, I thought I should show off some of my favorite Charger cards. Now, I’ve been a Chargers fan for most of my life. And when I think of Charger Football, I always think back to the Air Coryell era. Lots of points, tons of excitement. Charlie Joiner, Wes Chandler, the original Kellen Winslow, and of course #14 Dan Fouts. By far the greatest bearded quarterback of all time.
This was my very first Dan Fouts card. It came from my first pack of 1984 Topps football. While most kids would have gone bananas over the Dan Marino or John Elway, I couldn’t contain myself when I pulled this beauty. For me, pulling a Dan Fouts cad from my first ever pack of football cards was like card-collecting nirvana.
