Fun Cards: 1988 Topps Vinny Testaverde (NFL, baseball-style)

Vinny Knows Football Cards

Vinny Testaverde led the NFL in interceptions four times. I don’t think he’ll be getting a Hall of Fame bust any time soon.

Fun Cards: 1988 Topps Thurman Thomas (NFL, baseball-style)

Thurman Knows Football Cards

The Buffalo Bills were such a powerhouse. Thurman Thomas was a rookie running back in 1988 and started an eight-year streak of 1000 rushing yards in 1989.

Fun Cards: 1988 Topps Mark Duper (NFL, baseball-style)

Super Duper Knows Football Cards

Add Mark Duper and Mark Clayton‘s talents together, and Dan Marino had a couple really good receivers.

Still not as good as Jerry Rice.

Fun Cards: 1988 Topps Webster Slaughter (NFL, baseball-style)

Webster Knows Football Cards

Webster Slaughter was a Pro Bowler for both the Cleveland Browns and conference rival Houston Oilers.

Fun Cards: 1988 Topps Tim Harris (NFL, baseball-style)

Moon Knows Football Cards

I remember a little hype about Tim Harris, but not much. The 1986 fourth-rounder made the Pro Bowl in 1989.

Fun Cards: 1988 Topps Warren Moon (NFL, baseball-style)

Moon Knows Football Cards

Warren Moon played 17 seasons in the NFL. That, in and of itself, is impressive. But add another six years playing in Canada before that and…whoa. Dude might have been the greatest all-time and we just didn’t know it.

Fun Cards: 1988 Topps Randall Cunningham (NFL, baseball-style)

Randall Knows Football Cards

I don’t care what his stats look like. Randall Cunningham should be in the Hall of Fame.

Fun Cards: 1988 Topps Mark Clayton (NFL, baseball-style)

Clayton Knows Football Cards

Mark Clayton was a great wide receiver, but he was no Jerry Rice. Sorry Dan Marino. No Super Bowl rings for you.

Fun Cards: 1988 Topps Lawrence Taylor (NFL, baseball-style)

LT Knows Football Cards

Lawrence Taylor has such an impressive resume: Defensive Rookie of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year, Most Valuable Player, ten-time Pro Bowler, eight-time All-Pro, two-time Super Bowl Champ, Hall of Famer. Despite all the accolades, he also has a devastating downside. Multiple drug suspensions and arrests. Such talent, but how much greater could he have been?

Fun Cards: 1988 Topps Joe Montana (NFL, baseball-style)

Joe Knows Football Cards

I have never been a fan of Joe Montana, but you cannot deny his greatness. I mean, I guess you could, but you’d be wrong.
