Rich Saul, who played center for the Los Angeles Rams from 1970 to 1981, passed away on April 15, according to nfl.com. Saul made the Pro Bowl the last six of his twelve seasons, and he played in Super Bowl XIV against the Steelers. Saul’s brothers Bill and Ron also played in the NFL. Rich and Ron Saul were teammates at Michigan State; there is a nice article about them at profootballresearchers.org.
The card pictured here is Saul’s rookie card, a 1976 Topps, issued in his seventh season. He also appeared on a Topps card each year from 1977 to 1982.
