Fred Heron 1973 Topps St. Louis Cardinals Autographed Signed Football Card DECEASED

~~Great looking autographed football card of former St. Louis Cardinal...Fred Heron.

This is a nice looking autographed football card, which I had in my own personal collection.  Over the past 30 years, I have accumulated a number of autographed baseball and football cards and now I am beginning to part with a few duplicates.

Great looking autographed football card signed with a blue Sharpie.

We have acquired these autographed cards either in person, thru the mail or as part of large autograph collection purchases. 

In most cases the autographed cards that we have are in excellent condition.  If for some reason, you purchase an autographed baseball card and are not satisfied with the condition, you can return it in the same original condition for a full refund.

We are putting together our own autographed card sets for our personal collection and these in inventory are duplicates.  We intend on someday obtaining the other cards that we don't have in our own personal collection.  The sale of any of these autographed cards will go back into financing our own autographed set collections.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia...

Frederick Roger Heron (October 6, 1944 – December 28, 2010)[1] was a professional American football defensive lineman in the National Football League. He played seven seasons for the St. Louis Cardinals.

Heron was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the third round of the 1966 college draft, and Vince Lombardi traded him as a replacement for a lineman in the St. Louis Cardinals who had been forced to retire due to a heart murmur. [2]

He suffered a back injury in a game in 1969 that led to an operation in April 1970, but resulted in ongoing pain for some time.[2] By the end of his time with the Cardinals, he had become bothered by the violence of the sport, and in one interview stated "I watched the quarterback on the ground in obvious pain. I suddenly thought to myself, "Have I turned into some kind of animal? This is a game, but I’m trying to maim somebody.'"[3] He and his wife Betty studied the Bible with Jehovah's Witnesses and were both baptized as Witnesses in February 1972. The Cardinals released him from his contract after his back injuries led to another surgery in October 1972.[2] After Heron's retirement from football he went on to work as the campus security assistant at Rio Calaveras Elementary School in his hometown of Stockton, California.[4]

He died on December 28, 2010.[1]
