Joe Perry - 1955 Bowman

Fletcher Joseph “Joe” Perry (1927-2011) (FB) was a member of San Francisco’s “Million Dollar Backfield,” of which all four players (Y.A. Tittle, John Henry Johnson, Hugh McElhenny) were enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Playing alongside future teammate McElhenny at Compton Junior College, Perry helped lead the Tartars to two consecutive national championships in 1946 and 1947. In 1948, Perry joined the 49ers at the fullback position bringing a powerful element not yet seen in the NFL. His incredible speed, elusiveness and durability made him a weapon that the Niners would utilize the fullest for years to come, spanning three decades. Perry played 16 years in the NFL with the 49ers (1948-1960, 1963) and the Baltimore Colts (1961-1962). “The Jet,” as he was called, led the NFL three times in rushing and was the first player in history to rush for more than 1,000 yards in two straight seasons. He also led the league three times in rushing touchdowns, twice in rushing attempts and yards from scrimmage and once in total TDs (rushing and receiving). In 1954, Joe was named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player on the back of 1,018 rushing yards, 192 rushing attempts and ten touchdowns. Perry received three NFL Pro Bowl selections and was twice named to the NFL’s All-Pro First Team. Joe Perry finished his career as the all-time leading rusher with 9,723 yards, 1,929 rushing attempts and 71 rushing touchdowns. In all, he scored 513 points on 84 touchdowns, six extra points and one field goal. Joe Perry was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1969.
