I have written in the past about the most difficult-to-find autographed AFL cards of the 1960s.  The 1964 Dick Christy and 1968 Frank Buncom are exceptionally challenging due to the fact that Buncom and Christy both died shortly after those cards were issued.  This past week I was able to obtain another signed AFL card that has an equal or even greater degree of rarity.

In their 1964 football set, Topps issued team cards for each of the AFL franchises.  For my signed set I am trying to acquire team cards signed by each of the head coaches that season.  I also enjoy picking up additional team cards of favorite players or AFL personalities.  Included in my collection are team cards signed by Lance Alworth, Ernie Ladd, Sid Gillman, Al Davis, Hank Stram, Ben Davidson, Sammy Baugh, Cookie Gilchrist, Ralph Wilson and others.  My most recent acquisition, however, quickly became the rarest in my collection; it is card #110 in the 1964 Topps set, a Kansas City Chiefs team card that was autographed by Mack Lee Hill. read more
