Time: 3 Days
Item Sent: 1983 Vikings Police
Item Received: 1983 Vikings Police, signed in black Sharpie.
Hough was a mainstay on the Vikings offensive line from the late '70s to the mid '80s. He was versatile enough to play everywhere on the line, but had his most success as a guard. Outside of the football card explosion in the '90s, linemen have always been severely under-represented on cardboard, and I believe this 1983 police issue Vikings card to be the only one Hough had. My favorite aspect of this card: he's blocking the greatest Viking of all, the honorable Alan Page. So weird to see Page in a Bears uniform.
