I used to collect football autographs, but barely. I mostly focused on the Patriots, my favorite team, but barely at that as well.
I have but only a handful of football autographs left, I've traded away most of them. Of the Patriots, I have maybe a few more than a dozen.
Thought I'd show some of them on a monthly basis.
First up is Larry Garron.
Garron played his entire career with the Boston Patriots from 1960 thru 1968.
In a game against the Buffalo Bills on October 22, 1961 he had an 85 yard run from scrimmage, setting a team record (I'll have to verify if that still stands). In 1962 we averaged 5.9 yards per carry. In 1963 he had 1,168 total yards from scrimmage. Dude was a workhorse. Garron was also an American Football League All-Star in 1961, 1963, 1964 and 1967, and a member of the Patriots' All-1960s (AFL) Team.
After football he became a martial arts expert. He holds rank in Kenpō (fist law), Hakkō-ryū Jujutsu, Gōjū-ryū (hard soft system), Shintō Musō-ryū, Yoshitsune Jujitsu, and Taekwondo (don't ask me what those mean).
