Jack Christiansen was inducted into the pro football hall of fame in 1970.

He was small and focused on track in college, and did not play collegiate football.

He is included in the 1955 Bowman Football Set and probably others.

Brian,

If old timers cannot accurately remember whether they were in the major leagues or not, it seems reasonable that they might also have forgotten the shape of the ball. If Jack was a leather head, perhaps a concussion was a factor in his memory loss as well. The OP wanted information about the existence of any of Jack’s trading cards and I have put forth his 1955 Football Card as one plausible example in an honest effort to help. Perhaps I am prone to be a helpful member of this board. Shame on you.

Now the question would be where do you think the best place to try and locate one of these eBay?
