1972 NFLPA Wonderful World Stamps #2 Greg Brezina

Greg Brezina played linebacker for the University of Houston from 1965-67. He is 6th on the Cougar career tackles list with 350 and led the team in tackles in 1967 with 126.

Greg was named a Sports Extra All-American in 1967.

Several Brezina brothers played for the University of Houston. Bobby played from 1960-62 and was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in 1963. Gus played from 1962-64 and was drafted by the Houston Oilers in 1965. Bernie played from 1962-64. Butch played from 1970-71. Steve played from 1970-72. Not only did the brothers play at UH, Bobby's son Robby also played from 1985-86. Here is a great article about the Brezina Boys.

Greg was selected by the Atlanta Falcons in the 11th round of the NFL Draft. He played for 11 seasons in the NFL, all for the Falcons.

Today let's take a break from 1970s Topps. Today's card is the 1972 NFLPA Wonderful World Stamps #2. The stamps were to be glued into an album named The Wonderful World of Pro Football USA. So there's not much information on the card itself. You need the album to get the biography.

I am inspired by the article attached in this blog. It was indeed a humble beginning and a happy ending. Very inspiring specially for a mother and sons. A very well said story worth to share everyone.
