1973 Topps #276 Gus Hollomon

Gus Hollomon played defensive back for the University of Houston football team from 1965-67. He led the Cougars in interceptions in 1965 (5) and tied for team lead with Tom Paciorek in 1966 (6).

In the Cougar record books, he is tied for 2nd in career interceptions (14).

Hollomon was selected by the Denver Broncos in the 4th round of the 1968 AFL Draft. He played 2 seasons for the Broncos and 3 seasons for the New York Jets.

Today's card is the 1973 Topps #276. I LOVE the '70s. Just look at that mustache. Burt Reynolds would be so proud.

This is really Hollomon's only major manufacturer card. His other cards are team issue and NFLPA Wonderful World Stamps.
