A rare index card signed perfectly in blue ballpoint pen by 1945 All-American tackle, Russ Thomas. Thomas was drafted in the 3rd round (22nd overall pick) in the 1946 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions. He played four seasons for the Lions from 1946-1949. Nearly two decades later, Thomas became the General Manager of the team that drafted him.  He died in his sleep at the age of 66 in 1991.
