George Blanda - 1958 Topps

George Frederick Blanda (1927-2010) (QB/K) played a record 26 seasons in the NFL, scored the most points in history at the time of his retirement and is one of three players to play in four different decades. George played quarterback and placekicker/punter for the University of Kentucky and legendary coach Paul “Bear” Bryant. The Chicago Bears selected Blanda in the 12th round of the 1949 NFL Draft. He played for the Bears (1949, 1950-1958), the Baltimore Colts (1950), the American Football League’s Houston Oilers (1960-1966) and Oakland Raiders (1967-1969), remaining with the Raiders after the NFL merger (1970-1975). After a falling out with Bears management over playing time as a quarterback, George retired in 1958, only to be lured out of retirement by the Houston Oilers of the newly formed American Football League. Blanda led the league twice in passing yards, four times in interceptions, three times in average yards per game, and from 1963-1965 led the AFL in completions and attempts. As a kicker, he led the league three times in field goal attempts and field goal percentage, seven times in extra point attempts and eight times in extra points made. He was a four-time AFL Pro Bowl selection and was named to the 1961 NFL All-Pro First Team. In 1961, he was the AP and UPI’s AFL Most Valuable Player Award winner. He won the 1970 NFL Bert Bell Award for Player of the Year and won the 1974 Walter Payton Man of the Year Award winner. George Blanda continues to hold numerous professional football records including most touchdowns in a game (7), most season (26), first player to 2,000 points and most pass attempts in a single game (68). George scored at least one point in 26 seasons and finished his career with an astounding 2,002 total points on nine rushing touchdowns, 943 extra points made and 335 field goals made. George Blanda was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1980.
