1964 Houston Oilers: Philadelphia Style

Topps, 1964 Philadelphia football cards, custom cards

After three years at the top of the Eastern Division, the Oilers dipped to 3rd place in 1963 after winning the AFL Championship in 1961. Despite the downturn in fortunes, the Oilers still fielded a formidable team with George Blanda, Billy Cannon, and the AFL's top receiver, Charley Hennigan.  Unfortunately, 1963 was not an anomaly as the Oilers lost 9 straight games in the middle of the 1964 season.  The highlight of their 4-10 season was Charley Hennigan's 101 receptions.

RetroCards uses the attractive 1964 Philadelphia Gum card design to create a brand new Oilers set that includes: Don Floyd, Charley Frazier, W.K. Hicks, Larry Onesti, Sonny Bishop, Bob MacLeod, Rich Michael, Walt Suggs, Bob Talamini, Charley Tolar, Charlie Rieves, Sid Blanks, Bud McFadin, Donny Brabham, Doug Cline, Sammy Odom, Scott Appleton, George Blanda.
