1965 Cowboys Become Tallboys

Topps, Dallas Cowboys, NFL design, Tallboys

A great football card design from the sixties is the 1965 Tallboy design made only for AFL players.  In this RetroCards set, the NFL is represented by the Dallas Cowboys in the sharp set which has been newly updated to 20 cards!

The term "tallboys" refers to the size of this design, which was the standard sportscard width at 2.5 inches, but they are 4.75 inches tall, making this a formidable design that gives collectors a good look at their favorite players.

This set includes: Frank Clarke, Mike Gaechter, Tommy McDonald, Cornell Green, Pete Gent, George Andrie, Bob Hayes, Chuck Howley, Lee Roy Jordan, Bob Lilly, Dave Manders, Don Meredith, Ralph Neely, Pettis Norman, Don Perkins, Jethro Pugh, Dan Reeves, Mel Renfro, Jerry Rhome, and J.D. Smith.  Order yours here.
