Interesting Notes: Cannon was a “shifty, slashing” rusher with big-play potential that included a nearly 24-yard kick return average and a 40.3 yard punting average…won the Heisman in a landslide, sweeping all five regions…went on to have a successful professional career with the Oilers, Raiders, and Chiefs…was an All-Pro at two different positions for two different teams…continued his education and earned his D.D.S. during his professional playing career and currently works as an orthodontist.
Featured Card: 1960 Fleer #66. Despite a solid college and professional career, Cannon does not appear to command a premium in the hobby. A copy of this card can be added to your collection for around $25.
