    I had Curtis’ 1968 Topps Stand Up card. Him and Daryl Lamonica were the only two AFL players I had in the Stand Up card format.

    That is a great picture! You can see the Spalding boxes in the background too! Looks like each player got to take home one football with his teammates signatures…… So cool.
