Barry Sanders Bio-As a 1989 third overall draft pick by the Detroit Lions, just a few reasons Sanders is considered one of the best all-time NFL running backs includes setting the NFL record in 1997 for rushing a minimum of 100 yards in 14 consecutive games, leading the NFL in rushing yards four times, having a record 25 games rushing for 150 yards or more, and getting 15 career touchdown runs of 50 yards or greater, the most in the history of the NFL.  Because of his outstanding work in the game, Sanders was inducted into both the College Football Hall of Fame and the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Along with that, he was named among the “Top 100 Greatest NFL Players by NFL Network.  However, because he was inducted into the Pro Hall of Fame while still in his 30s, it makes him the only member of football to be given this honor.  In comparison to other running backs, Sanders is considered small at just 5’8” but that did not stop him from stamping his name forever on NFL football.  Anyone interested in purchasing the Sanders rookie card could look at local memorabilia stores although eBay tends to be one of the better places to buy.

I’ve seen a Barry Sanders football card that on the back has him listed as playing his college football at another school. Is this a miss print. He played a OSU Right.
