1977 Cardinals Team Issue #11 Bob Giblin

Bob Giblin played defensive back for the University of Houston from 1972-1974. He was co-captain of the 1974 team. As a defensive back, he is tied for 8th in career interceptions with 11.

On top of being a solid defensive player, Giblin was also a solid punt returner. He has the 8th best season punt return average at 16.1 yards in 1974.

He was named as an All-American Honorable Mention in both 1973 and 1974.

After his college days, Giblin was selected by the New York Giants in the 4th round of the 1975 NFL Draft. He was the 3rd of 9 Cougars selected that year. He played for the Giants in 1975 and for the Saint Louis Cardinals in 1977.

Today's card is the 1977 Cardinals Team Issue #11. Unfortunately I don't have an image of this card. It is Giblin's only card. It's so rare that I'm able to find Team Issue cards, either for sale or just images of them. And there weren't any other Cougars on 1977 cards that haven't already been featured on this blog.
