Year: 2006

Set: Upper Deck Legends (Rate)

Card: #13 Christian Okoye


“ Legend accurately describes this man. Great card. ” -parsley24   6
“ The hit Steve Atwater put on Christian Okoye is one of, if not the most crystalized memories I have from watching football as a kid. ” -jackal726   6
“ I like this set. The cards are perfect for in person (or through the mail) autographs. ” -captkirk42   3
“ This is a nice card. I enjoy collecting cards of retired players. Upper Deck Legends was one of the best issues for this. ” -Brendan Barrick
“ Keep the football cards coming! I miss the days of multiple season stat lines published on card backs. We clearly see 1989 and 1991 were Okoye's best seasons. Looking at the checklist of 100 veterans I see Tiki Barber is the only New York Giants player. How could any list of legends not include Lawrence Taylor? ” -freakizon   3
“ One of my favorite players on Tecmo Super Bowl. ” -jupiterhill   4

Dude was absolutely huge for a running back, shame he didn't play too long, cause he was really good.

They called him "The Nigerian Nightmare". This is no racial dialogue.  It's just true if you're in an opposing teams uniform and see that man coming with a football in his hand.  That's a true native description of his nickname and namesake as a feared and loveable player and man!  I met him once in Orlando FL.  No one in the NFL had or has a larger upper body (Rib cage and shoulder width as well as reach of arm length) for a skill position player, even out of pads, than Christian Okoye!

Quite a nice card, even if the front is a little bland.
