Earl Campbell was arguably the toughest running back to bring down the NFL has ever seen. Though his reign was brief, he carved out a well-deserved Hall Of Fame career. Presumably due to a contractual issue, Campbell only had football cards following his rookie season. During his playing career, there were to be no more Earl Campbell cards after 1979.
RetroCards has created a comprehensive Earl Campbell card set filling in the missing years: 1980-1986, a pre-rookie 1978 card, several “League Leader” cards, and a few extras. One of the most under represented football players on cardboard now can grace the vinyl pages of RetroCard collectors! Get your set here!

The 1974 Dallas Cowboys season was a difficult one and in hindsight can be seen as a traditional year which saw a change of the guard from the old vets like Bob Lilly, Bob Hayes, Dave Manders, and Cornell Green to up-and-coming stars like Drew Pearson, Charlie Waters, Golden Richards, and Robert Newhouse. Though they missed the playoffs that year, they would appear in three Super Bowls in the next five years.
This set contains the aforementioned up-and-coming stars as well as some fan favs like Otto Stowe, Jim Arneson, Rodrigo Barnes, Gene Fugett, Doug Dennison, Bruce Walton, John Babinecz, and more! Get this fun custom set here!

The very first RetroCards set produced was of the 1960 Dallas Cowboys. We thought it appropriate to start with a 1960 set because Cowboy collectors had to endure a team set of out-of-date player photos in their former team uniforms, some of whom never even ended up on the final 1960 Cowboys roster. That first set was fun to create and collectors responded so favorably that RetroCards has created another 18-card set featuring MORE 1960 Cowboys!
Frank Clarke, Bill Butler, Gene Cronin, Tom Franckhauser, L.G. Dupre, Buzz Guy, and Jack Patera, are just a sampling of the new set. Granted, many of these players didn’t last long but Dallas Cowboy football card collecting had begun and RetroCards has taken card collecting to a new level with custom card creations of the old players we love! Get the 1960 Dallas Cowboys Series II here! Series I is also available here.
