Frank Gifford - 1958 Topps

Francis Newton Gifford (1930-2015) (HB/WR) missed the 1961 football season, deciding to retire, due to a head injury after a thunderous hit by Philadelphia Eagles Hall of Famer Chuck Bednarik. Gifford would make a comeback in 1962 and return to his star status despite changing positions. After earning Junior College All-American honors, Gifford joined the University of Southern California Trojan football team and was named an All-American in his senior season playing quarterback, halfback, fullback, punter and placekicker. The New York Giants selected Frank Gifford with the 11th overall pick in the 1952 NFL Draft immediately plugging him into the backfield with Pro Bowlers Charlie Conerly and Kyle Rote. Though he began as a two-way player, often playing up to 50 minutes per game, Gifford like most others, post World War II, became strictly an offensive player in his first few seasons. In 1956, Frank was named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player after leading the Giants to the NFL League Championship. During that career season, he amassed 1,422 yards from scrimmage with 819 rushing yards and 5 rushing touchdowns, 603 receiving yards and 4 receiving touchdowns adding eight extra points and one field goal. Gifford and the Giants would play for the NFL league title on four more occasions (1858, 1959, 1962, 1963). Frank was named to eight NFL Pro Bowl appearances and was a four-time NFL All-Pro First Team selection. Frank Gifford retired after 12 seasons with the Giants (1952-1960, 1962-1964) with 9,043 yards from scrimmage and 484 total points on 78 touchdowns, 10 extra points and two field goals. Frank Gifford was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1977 and the College Football Hall of Fame in 1975. Frank went on to become a highly successful sports broadcaster and spent more than 25 years as a color analyst and commentator on Monday Night Football.
