Dave Lloyd - MLB

Dave Lloyd played for the Eagles from 1963 to 1970. (Earlier, he also played for the Browns and Lions.)

Lloyd was the Eagles' starting middle linebacker for the first 7 of his 8 seasons with the team. He played in 93 games over his first 7 seasons with the Birds, starting every one of them.

He also started the first 5 games in his 8th season, then was relegated to the bench in favor of Tim Rossovich, who was moved from defensive end to middle linebacker. To earn his keep, Lloyd played on special teams for the remainder of his final season - specifically, he was the kicker on the kickoff team (but not for field goals or extra points).

Lloyd made the Pro Bowl in 1969, his last as a full-time player.

Here are all of Dave's football cards ('65, '67, '68, '69, '70). In 1968 Topps resumed issuing NFL cards for the first time since 1963. All the NFL players in the first series are shown in old photographs (in Lloyd's case, with the Lions). AFL players, and NFL players in series 2 have more recent photos.

Where's Waldo Dave?
