Interesting Notes: Kelley was the first player to receive the “Heisman Trophy” after the Downtown Athletic Club changed the name of its outstanding player award. Kelley never played professional football, opting instead for the teaching, coaching, and business fields. Kelley was elected to the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame in 1969.

Featured Card: 1955 Topps All American #26. As many old time college football stars, Kelley’s only true rookie card is featured in this legendary set. This card can be yours for anywhere from $5 to $925, mostly depending on condition and whether or not it is officially graded. Most eBay listings fall within a $30-$40 range.
