Turk Edwards Signed 3x5 Index Card Washington Redskins Football HOF D.1973 PSA/DNA

Albert Glen "Turk" Edwards (d 1973) was an American football offensive tackle in the NFL. He played his entire career for, and eventually became the head coach of, the Washington Redskins. Edwards was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1969. He was a 3-time pro bowler, NFL champ in 1937, was named to the NFL 1930s All-Decade team and also one of the 70 greatest Redskins.

Unfortunately, his career was cut short due to a freak injury. Edwards was injured at a coin-tossing ceremony prior to a game against the New York Giants in 1940. After calling the coin toss and shaking hands with former teammate Mel Hein (the Giants' captain), Edwards attempted to pivot around to head back to his sideline. However, his cleats caught in the grass and his oft-injured knee gave way, ending his season and ultimately his career.
