1960 Topps Art Donovan

Art "Fatso" Donovan - June 5, 1925-August 4 ,2013

Once again sad news has caused me to interrupt my Ron Santo football card theme and make a card of a legendary player who has passed away.  Although Donovan had cards from 1956-59 and in 1961 for some reason he was omitted from the 1960 set. 

 Art Donovan was a Hall of Fame tackle both offensive and defensive.  More importantly he was a larger than life personality.  He was a favorite on late night television.  He would tell stories of old school football that would have the likes of Letterman and even Johnny Carson in stitches.  He will be missed.

Here is just a sample of some of his entertaining interviews you can find on You Tube:
