Bobby Bell

1971 Topps

Bobby Lee Bell, Sr. (June 17, 1940-) (LB/DE) began his playing days as a quarterback in high school, but the University of Minnesota converted him into a linebacker where he was a two-time All-American and won the 1962 Outland Trophy, honoring college football’s best interior linebacker in the nation. With Bell’s help the Golden Gophers won the 1960 National Championship, played in the 1961 Rose Bowl and won the 1963 Rose Bowl. He finished third in Heisman voting in 1962. The Kansas City Chiefs took Bell in the second round of the 1963 NFL Draft. Bobby joined the Chiefs of the American Football League and helped lead them to two AFL Championships (1966, 1969). He is often considered the most physically gifted linebackers in professional football history due to his speed, strength, athleticism and passion for the game. A missed tackle only meant more work for Bell, and was likely to happen twice. He made a key goal-line tackle of New York Jets Matt Snell in the 1969 AFL Championship Game to insure the Chiefs victory, 13-7. He played his entire career with the Chiefs (1963-1974) and was a member of the 1970 Super Bowl IV championship team. Bell was a six-time AFL All-Star selection, a five-time AFL All-Pro First Team selection, a three-time NFL Pro Bowl selection and was named to the 1970 NFL All-Pro First Team. Bobby Bell finished his career with 26 interceptions, six of which he returned for touchdowns; nine fumble recoveries with two return TDs and one on-side kick return for a touchdown for a total of 54 points. Bobby Bell was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1983 and the College Football Hall of Fame in 1991.
