Les Richter - 1962 Topps

Leslie Alan Richter (October 26, 1930 - June 12, 2010) (LB/MG/K) was involved in the second largest trade in NFL history when he was traded from the Dallas Texans to the Los Angeles Rams for eleven players. He starred for the University of California at three different positions, linebacker, guard and place kicker. Les earned many of the elite college football awards at California including All-American honors. The New York Yanks took Richter with the second overall pick of the 1952 NFL Draft out of the University of California. Richter spent two years (1952-1953) in the United States Army infantry before returning to play for the Los Angeles Rams in 1954. He was utilized as a middle linebacker throughout his career and used as a place kicker early on. In 1955, he led the NFL in field goal attempts (24) connecting on thirteen. In nine seasons with the Rams, he had 16 interceptions and 12 fumble recoveries. He scored 193 total points on 106 extra points and 29 career field goals. In 1956, Les Richter was an NFL All-Pro First Team selection and he was named to eight consecutive NFL Pro Bowl appearances (1954-1961). Les Richter was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2011 and the College Football Hall of Fame in 1982.
