Custom Card: 1974 Topps Art Monk

A "Card the Never Was" style custom with Hall of Famer Art Monk who spent the last 3 games of 1995 with the Eagles before retiring. This seemed fairly appropriate with the Redskins playing in Philadelphia this weekend with Washington having a chance to take the NFC East with two more wins.

Monk was my favorite player as a kid and seeing him in an Eagles jersey is still hard and even weirder with him wearing #85. Over his 3 games with the Eagles, Monk caught 6 passes bringing his career totals to 940 receptions with 12,721 yards and 68 touchdowns. He was finally elected to the Hall of Fame in 2008 along with team mate Darrell Green in 2008.
