The Story of the Autograph
Harry Carson played inside linebacker for the New York Giants for his entire 13-year career. He saw some good times and some bad times, but Mr. Carson was always a leader and always one of the best.
Carson is from South Carolina and went to South Carolina State University in the early to mid-70’s. In those four years he never missed a game. He played on some teams with amazing defensive records, recording six shutouts in his senior season and held teams to just 29 points (an NCAA record for a ten-game season). That year he had 117 tackles and 17 sacks. He was also the first MEAC player to win consecutive defensive player of the year honors. All of these accomplishments helped him to the College Football Hall of Fame in 2002.
He was drafted in the fourth round by the Giants in 1976. He was their captain for ten seasons and led the team in tackles for five. Carson made the Pro Bowl nine times in 1978, 1979, and then 1981-1987. He was also First-team All-Pro twice and Second-team All-Pro four times. After so many years with the Giants they finally reached the Super Bowl in 1986, for Super Bowl XXI, and beat the Denver Broncos. Harry would end his career two years later. In 2006 Carson was voted the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
The Score on Harry Carson – 8.0
There are so many things to like about Harry’s autograph. He’s got these places where he does little things with consistency that give it a theme. For instance, take those little zigzags at the beginning of the “H” and the “C”. Or the way he ends the “H” and the “y”. Those little things to me are what make this really special. It’s got loops, but at the same time its got some edges. On top of all that, he uses a good marker and it’s a great size for a card.
These has to be one of my favorites for the year. Of course I might be biased as a Giants fan. Now I need to find some better cards for Harry to try this out on.
Thanks Mr. Carson! 8.0!
