John Henry Johnson - 1958 Topps

John Henry Johnson (November 24, 1929 - June 3, 2011) (FB) spent one season playing for the Calgary Stampeders before making his mark on the National Football League in 1954 as he finished second in the league in rushing yards (681) and earned his first NFL Pro Bowl selection. The Pittsburgh Steelers selected John Henry in the second round of the 1953 NFL Draft out of Arizona State University. Despite being drafted, he played one season in Canada where he won the 1953 Jeff Nicklin Memorial Trophy as the CFL Western Division MVP, and then returned to begin his NFL career with the San Francisco 49ers. He was a member of the “Million Dollar Backfield” with fellow Hall of Famers Y.A. Tittle, Hugh McElhenny and Joe Perry. Johnson was an excellent all-around running back with skills as a receiver as well. John Henry played 13 seasons in the NFL with the 49ers (1954-1956), the Detroit Tigers (1957-1959), the Pittsburgh Steelers (1960-1965) and the Houston Oilers (1966) of the American Football League. He was a two-time NFL All-Pro First Team selection and appeared in four NFL Pro Bowls. In his first season as a Lion, Johnson helped lead Detroit to the NFL’s League Championship and shocked the Cleveland Browns with a 59-14 victory in the title game. John Henry Johnson finished his career with 6,803 rushing yards on 1,571 attempts and 48 rushing touchdowns. He posted 8,281 career yards from scrimmage and 330 total points on 55 all-purpose touchdowns. John Henry Johnson was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1987.
