Autographed 1960 Fleer Chris Burford

#081 – Chris Burford

One of the great sources for AFL articles and information is the Kansas City Chiefs web site.  The Chiefs have a Hall of Honor museum, employ a team historian (Bob Moore, who has been very helpful to me and this site), and take the business of documenting their history seriously.

In this recent article, brought to my attention by reader Todd Kurlan, Bob Moore explores the talent searches that made the Chiefs so dominant in the late 1960s.  Quoted liberally throughout the article is Chris Burford, an original Texans/Chiefs player, and one of the most active former players here on Tales from the American Football League.
