Black Borders Are Back in 1985
The 1985 Dallas Cowboys season marked the last time in the Landry-era the team had a winning record as well as made the playoffs. Fans hoped that many of the younger players would step up to become perennial Pro Bowlers but unfortunately for Cowboys fans, that never happened. This RetroCards set features many players from the 1984 team and a couple of new comers.
This set was striking with a solid black border and horizontal style. The large-scale lettering for the player name is a real change from most other designs where the focus was the team name. Starters such as Kurt Petersen, Anthony Dickerson, Dextor Clinkscale, Timmy Newsome, Glen Titensor, Howard Richards, Brian Baldinger, Ron Fellows, Gene Lockhart are all here. Other contributors include punter John Warren, Doug Donley, Duriel Harris, Jesse Penn, Steve DeOssie, USFL standout John Williams, and former CFL star Waddell Smith. Draft choice Crawford Ker, coach Tom Landry, and a team card are also included. Coming soon!
