Saw It on eBay: Tom Thayer Football Card

Who doesn't want to own a piece of Joliet memorabilia that has ties to the greatest Chicago Bears team of all time?

Is it politically incorrect to say that we barely recognize Joliet native Tom Thayer from this football card showing him as he looked when he played for the University of Notre Dame?

Not that Tom's not a good-looking guy sans hair -- in fact, he probably looks better (check out the two photos and decide for yourself) -- we're just sayin'...

Well, that's neither here nor there. The point of this post is the young Thayer's card is being sold on eBay and can be yours if you're willing to pony up $6.90, plus $2.25 for shipping. 

Tom's claim to fame, aside from his Joliet roots and Joliet Catholic Academy football days, was being part of the 1985 Super Bowl-winning Chicago Bears. He now does team play-by-play analysis on WBBM-AM (780). His family owns Thayer Brothers Restaurant and Deli and Thayer's 158 North, both in Joliet.
