The 10 greatest football cards of the 1980s - No 1 - 1982 Topps Terry Bradshaw (IA)

Terry certainly thinks so. I think this is the first sports card to capture an athlete giving the number 1 salute.  The great thing about the 1982 set. Topps was able to unleash the logos on their football cards and give the cards some personalty. This card shows the joy of the game and unihibited behavior on part of the athlete. This type of card is routinely scene in Topps Baseball issues now a days (pictures of players celebrating). Looking at this card made me think if there were any football cards that showed a player doing a touchdown dance.. I think there probably is one out there from the last few years.
