|1962 Kahns||29||Frank Ryan||Cleveland Browns||quarterback||Rice||I believe that Ryan is wearing Len Dawson's old jersey in this photo. Dawson wore number 18 for the Browns, and the Browns released him around June 1, 1962. The Browns then acquired Ryan in a trade on July 12, 1962. By the time the Browns had their 1962 team photo taken, Ryan was wearing number 13, his number for his seven seasons in Cleveland.|

Ryan is shown in number 18 on his 1963 Topps card, though he wore number 13 for the Browns. I believe this photo was taken just after he joined the team in 1962. See his 1962 Kahn's Wieners card for details.
