QBs Of 1973: Can't Get Enough
The quarterbacking landscape in the 1973 professional football world was much like it is today: only a handful of great ones, several midrange QBs that move around a lot, some up-and comers, and some down-and-outers. 1973 had a glut of athletes trying to claw their way to the top and RetroCards focuses on the quarterback position for this special set.
So many quarterbacks were floating around, there were enough RetroCards for two 20-card series! Several high profile players like Dan Fouts, Bert Jones, Roman Gabriel, Sonny Jurgenson, and Joe Ferguson are featured (Gabriel gets a Ram card AND an Eagle card) and grace this series while some “never-would-be’s” also get their due in this set. Coming soon!
Series one includes: Lynn Dickey, Sonny Sixkiller, Joe Gilliam, Jim Del Gaizo (Dolphins), Joe Reed, Tim Van Galder, Daryle Lamonica, Roman Gabriel (Rams), Edd Hargett, Mike Livingston, Terry Hanratty, Pete Beathard, Gary Huff, Don Horn, Bert Jones, James Harris, Bill Nelson, Greg Cook, John Huarte and a checklist card.
Series two includes: Roman Gabriel (Eagles), Jack Concannon, Dan Fouts, Jerry Tagge, Sam Wyche, Joe Ferguson, Wayne Clark, Bob Lee, Jim Del Gaizo (Packers), Tony Adams, Al Woodall, Dick Shiner, Randy Johnson, Sonny Jurgenson, Bill Munson, Bobby Scott, Bill Demory, Bill Cappleman, and Charlie Napper plus a checklist card.
