1965 NFL Rookie of the Year
For the first and only time, both the NFL and AFL Rookies of the Year were future Hall of Famers. In the AFL was a brash young QB out of Alabama named Joe Namath. We've all seen his iconic rookie 1965 Tall-Boy, below. In the NFL was a a quiet running back out of Kansas, Gale Sayers. He wouldn't be seen on cardboard until the 1966 Philadelphia set in which he had 2 cards. He had a regular issue and was featured on an action card in that set.
