1963 Colts Team Issue #3 Jim Colvin and #5 Wiley Feagin

We have a special two for one today.

Player 1, Jim Colvin. Jim played on both the defensive and offensive lines for the University of Houston from 1957 to 1959. He was named first team All-Conference in the Missouri Valley Conference in 1959.

Colvin was selected by the Baltimore Colts in the 8th round of the 1960 NFL Draft. He played 8 years of professional football for the Colts, Dallas Cowboys, and New York Giants.

Player 2, Wiley Feagin. Wiley was a guard for the Cougars from 1958 to 1960. Those lines in 1958 and 1959 must have been pretty good with 2 future professionals. He was captain of the 1960 team, UH's first year as an independent.

Feagin played 3 seasons of professional football for the Baltimore Colts and Washington redskins

Today's cards are from the 1963 Colts Team Issue set. Sorry that I don't have an image of these. Another case of fewer players to choose from without repeating a player and uncommon cards.

The "cards" are 7 7/8" x 10 1/4" on glossy heavy paper stock. They feature a black and white photo on the front along with the player's team, position, height, weight, and college. The backs are blank. The cards are not numbered, but are generally listed by number in alphabetical order.

This IS NOT Jim Colvin or Wiley Feagin. It is Tony Lorick who did not play for the Cougars. It is just an example from this card set.
