An awesome card but graphics designed by children

Meet Royce Berry.

Royce Berry, drafted in the seventh round of the 1969 common draft, was a former defensive end for the Cincinnati Bengals. Berry scored a touchdown on a 58-yard fumble return, helping secure a 17-16 halftime lead over the Cleveland Browns on Oct. 11, 1970. Eventually the Browns won, 30-27.
