Earlier in the week I shared the first half of a discussion that I had last week with former Dallas Texans and Kansas City Chiefs star, Chris Burford.  Actually, “discussion” isn’t the correct word.  It was more of a rambling reminiscence.  As we flipped through a binder full of old AFL trading cards, Chris commented on the various players that he saw, and the memories that they rekindled.

Here you will find the second half of that discussion.  For those that want to look at the cards as we did, check out the 1963 & 1963 Fleer, and 1964 Topps sets HERE.

    Stood next to Chris Burford on the field at Frank Youell after the Raiders beat the Chiefs 37-10 in September, 1965. You could walk onto the field after the game. How times have changed. He was talking to an older couple, who knows, they might have been his parents. Burford did go to Stanford, not far from Oakland.

    Chris had a good game in Super Bowl I against Green Bay.

    Really enjoyed Burford’s reminisces.

    Todd, when talking to Alworth next week, please ask him what defensive back gave him the toughest time coverage-wise?
