Gino Marchetti - 1958 Topps

Gino John Marchetti (January 2, 1926 - April 29, 2019) (DE/T/DT) is considered one of the greatest players ever in the NFL. He was referred to as such by legendary Rams head coach Sid Gillman and opponent Forrest Gregg, in addition he was formally named “the greatest defensive end in pro football history” by the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1972. Marchetti began his career with the Dallas Texans (1952) before they became the Baltimore Colts, where he would remain for the duration of his career (1953-1966). The Dallas Texans took Gino in the second round of the 1952 NFL Draft out of the University of San Francisco. Marchetti’s keen ability to close holes and rush the passer made him the most dangerous defensive end of his era. As teams double- and triple-teamed him, drawing blockers away from the ball, his Colts teammates were able to attack the line and pocket forcing plays and breaking up would-be gains and points. Gino was an 11-time NFL Pro Bowl selection - earning the 1963 Pro Bowl MVP Award - and was named to nine NFL All-Pro First Teams. He led his Colts to back-to-back NFL Championships in 1958 and 1959. As Marchetti was growing up, his father was against Gino playing football for fear of him being injured. As luck would have it, in the final game of the 1958 season and the first game that his parents watched on television, Gino broke his leg. Gino Marchetti played 161 games, recovered 13 fumbles, and scored 20 total points on one receiving TD, two fumble recovered for TDs and one safety. Gino Marchetti was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1972.
