The 10 greatest football cards of the 1980s - No. 9 - 1981 Topps Dwight Clark
One thing that always struck me about this card was what a good looking guy Dwight Clark is here. He looks like some teen age heart throb. Clark would make the Catch in the 1981 playoffs. This was Clark's rookie card, I never heard of him until the 49ers started winning that year.
While you can not see it - on the back of the card there is a cartoon noting that Clark was married to a Beauty Queen. A Beauty Queen. How many guys marry a Beauty Queen. What a good looking and fortunate guy.
