Interesting Notes: Huarte became the sixth Notre Dame Heisman winner in one of the tightest votes in history…was the clear leader of the successful 1964 Fighting Irish squad after playing just 50 minutes prior to his senior year…played professional football for 10 years, 8 of which were in the NFL…is now a very successful businessman as the owner and president of 14 tile and marble distribution stores in the western United States.

1965 Topps #117

Featured Card: 1965 Topps #117. Huarte is certainly not one of the premier Heisman winners of yesteryear, and his card prices reflect this. There is currently only one copy of this 1965 rookie card listed on eBay and it carries a $25 price tag. There are several other vintage cards (usually 1967 Topps) for less than $10 and quite a few newer legend- and Heisman-focused cards that can be yours for $5 or less.
