After getting very few carries during his first three seasons with the team, he really turned it on with 561 yards during the last three games of the 2009 season, including a 286 yard game in Kansas City which broke Jim Brown's team single-game rushing record.
He had a slow start to the 2010 season, with limited carries and was traded to the Eagles on October 18 for Mike Bell. After finishing the season with Philadelphia, he signed as a free agent with the Detroit Lions. The Lions arranged to trade him back to the Eagles, but the trade was voided after his physical discovered a brain tumor. He had surgery, which discovered that the tumor was benign, but there were complications which led to the end of his career. According to his Wikipedia entry, on Thanksgiving 2012, CBS aired a special documenting his recovery which said that he had regained many of his motor skills. I have seen no other updates as to how he is doing.

One reason to show you the back of this card was to show that they actually identify the card as a refractor, but the main reason to show it to you is the trivia that the cartoon brings. (And Tuesday is my trivia night with Buzztime trivia.)
John Havlicek actually participated at training camp for the Browns in 1962 as a wide receiver. I guess he made the right choice in going to the NBA as he had a Hall of Fame career with the Celtics.
