2021 Card-vent Calendar: December 12

December 12, 2021:
1973 Topps #47 Mike Bragg
Such is the unappreciated life of a punter.  You wait all game, just hoping that you don't have to play.  If you're lucky, you'll see some action when a teammate tries to use the ice for an unapproved reason.  See the ICE bucket Mike is guarding?  "Emergency use only," it says.  Mike enforces this.  He lies in wait, ready for the moment that may never come.
What runs through the mind of a punter during a particularly uneventful game?  For one, you have plenty of time to conceive of a contemporary Christian music album you're thinking of titling "By Request Only" and releasing under the mysterious pseudonym "Ken."
Mike, you were never spectacular, but you played your part to the best of your ability.


  1. Great look at the Yankee Stadium scoreboard in the background. Looks like the Giants were losing 16-3. They went on to lose 26-13. Bragg had 4 punts for 154 yards.

  2. This may be the greatest football card of all time
