Bobby Layne Bio-
After playing football in college and being considered one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, Layne went on to become a number one draft choice for the NFL.  He debuted as a professional with the Chicago Bears in 1948 although he also played a year with the New York Bulldogs, eight years with the Detroit Lions, and four years with the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Although his primary position was that of quarterback, Layne also served as placekicker.  Layne was chosen to play in the Pro Bowl five times and made the NFL 1950s Decade Team.

Although he had numerous accomplishments, his disappointment upon retiring from the game was never winning a Pittsburgh Steeler championship, although he did go on to serve as assistant coach for the team.  Layne had strong leadership skills and was highly regarded not only among his own team members, but throughout the NFL.  Sadly, Layne was also a heavy drinker and just prior to turning 60 years old, he died from alcoholism but he also dealt with cancer.  The best place to find quality Bobby Layne football cards is without doubt through auction sites.

I have a Bobby Layne football card – it says Bobby Layne – Quarterback – Detroit Lions he is holding a football and wearing #22 Jersey – the card is manufactured by TCG – there is no date. It also has a section on the back of the card that says “Rub edge of coin over blank space for answer” Any idea of pricing on this??
