Posted By: <b>Michael Moran</b><p>In reading the book The Passing Game about Benny Friedman, the author talks about Tony Plansky who came to the Giants in 1928 and had been a national decathlon champion at Georgetown. Plansky played both pro football and pro baseball and later was track coach at Williams - and the track is now named in his honor. Then I came across the card below - which led me to wonder if there were other NFL players who had cards from another sport - <br><br><img src="http://i274.photobucket.com/albums/jj277/revmoran/TonyPlansky.jpg" alt="[linked image]">
