Hey Harvey Martin, You're All-Pro, Defensive Player of the Year, Super Bowl co-MVP . . .

By John Turney

January, 1977, NFL agent to Harvey Martin: "Harv, You're All-Pro, you are the Defensive Player of the Year, You are the Super Bowl co-MVP in a game the Dallas Cowboys won and as a World Champ we will get you big-time endorsement dollars from the "The big four – shoe, car, clothing, soft drink. The four jewels of the celebrity endorsement dollar.”

After months of no deals with any of the "big four" . . .

NFL agent to Harvey Martin, "Harv, ole buddy, Will you settle for an electric Afro-pick?"

Harvey Martin to agent, "What, Waterbed Warehouse wasn't available?"
