December 4, 2020 1969 Super Bowl Jets, Miami Dolphins and other football

It's been a long while since I have posted any new customs but since I had some time I decided to post some autographed  customs from the last year. All were either TTM or through private signings.

I'll start off with football......


The Super Bowl New York Jets were my favorites when I was small, I'm sorry to say it's been all downhill for the Jets since then. I was on a Topps Greatest Moments kick when I did these.

Matt Snell 

was the AFL Rookie of the Year in 1964. He scored the only Jets touchdown in Super Bowl III and rushed for a then record 121 yards in the game. He was tough.


Emerson Boozer 

was the halfback and when Matt Snell was hurt, he was the best Jets rusher. He could run, catch and block.Very dependable.


Pete Lammons

was the tight end on the Super Bowl team and caught 32 passes that season. He was drafted by the Jets in the 4th round of the 1966 AFL Draft after playing at the University of  Texas.


 Gerry Philbin

played defensive tackle was an AFL All Star in 1968 and 1969 and had 14 1/2 sacks during the Super Bowl season. He played one year ( 1973) with the Philadelphia Eagles and finished his career in 1974 with the New York Stars of the W.F.L., who also had other Super Bowl Jets on the roster.....George Sauer, John Dockery, John Elliott, Randy Beverly and Babe Parilli. 


 Ralph Baker

played linebacker for the Jets from 1964 to 1974 after going to college at Penn State.



 Larry Little

 Dwight Stephenson

played his college football at Alabama and was drafted by the  Dolphins in the second round of the 1980 NFL draft. He was voted as an All-Pro five consecutive times from 1983 to 1987 when the Dolphins led the league in fewest sacks allowed from 1982 to 1987. He was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1998.

Tony Nathan

was a college star at Alabama and was drafted in the third round by the Dolphins in the 1979 NFL draft.
