Bobby Layne Signed Index Card Featuring His Most Exciting Pro Football Moment.

Lot 261. Bobby Layne Signed Index Card Featuring His Most Exciting Pro Football Moment. PSA/DNA authentication accompanies the autographed card. Layne is a member of both the College and Pro Football Halls of Fame. An All-America at quarterback at the University of Texas, he subsequently led the Detroit Lions to NFL Championships in 1952 and 1953. He helped them to win another in 1957; a broken leg ended his season in the 11th game. Layne played for the Pittsburgh Steelers from 1958-62. When he retired before the start of the 1963 season, he held the NFL career records for passing attempts (3,700), completions (1,814), yards gained (26,768), touchdown passes (196) and interceptions (243). He is given credit for creating the two-minute drill. A six-time Pro Bowl selection, Layne was ranked 52nd on “The Sporting News” list of “Football’s 100 Greatest Players” in 1999. Among the last players to refuse to use a facemask, Layne was called "The Toughest Quarterback Who Ever Lived" in a 1995 special issue of “Sports Illustrated.” He died in 1986. His autograph is mint 9 on an index card that lists the teams he quarterbacked. On the back, he wrote “Most exciting moment was winning the N.F.L. Championship in 1952 against the Cleveland Browns.” He also commended teammate Joe Schmidt. Winning Bid $168.
