Kilmer, Billy – Bonin's Briefs

Kilmer, Billy

We are collecting all sports cards, memorabilia and any photographs of Billy Kilmer in a New Orleans Saints uniform. He played QB for the Saints from 1967-1970. He played college football for the UCLA Bruins. Kilmer was selected in the expansion draft by the New Orleans Saints and, despite originally being thought of as the team’s third-best signal caller, became the team’s starting quarterback for much of the next four seasons, although he shared time with Edd Hargett during his final two seasons. His most prolific performance during his four-year stint with the team came on November 2, 1969, when he threw for 345 yards and six touchdowns in a 51-42 win over the St. Louis Cardinals. Frustrated after four years of the Saints’ futility and sensing New Orleans would draft Ole Miss star Archie Manning with the second overall pick of the 1971 NFL Draft, Kilmer asked to be traded and was granted his wish on January 23, 1971, when he was traded to the Washington Redskins for linebacker Tom Roussel and two draft selections.
