1955 49ers Team Issue #10 Paul Carr

Paul Carr played linebacker for the University of Houston from 1951 to 1953. He was co-captain of the 1953 team.

Carr was a teammate of Bobby Clatterbuck and shared many of the same firsts such as the first bowl game and victory and first ranking.

He was named All American Honorable Mention in 1951 and 1952 as well as 1st Team All Gulf Coast Conference in 1951 and 1st Team Missouri Valley All Conference in 1952.

Paul was selected by the San Francisco 49ers in the 7th round of the 1954 NFL Draft. He played 3 seasons from 1995 to 1957 for the 49ers.

Today's card is the 1955 49ers Team Issue #10, another sharp team issue set measuring 4 1/4" x 6 1/4". As usual, I love the 1950s posed photograph. Did they tell players not to look at the camera? Maybe they did that to make it look more like an action shot, but if that's the case, he really shouldn't be smiling.
