1968 Dallas Cowboys: One More Philadelphia Set



This RetroCards 24-card set is a continuation of the Philadelphia Gum Football sets of the sixties. Philadelphia released cards of NFL players between 1964-1967. This set of Dallas Cowboy cards is what a set may have looked like in 1968, if one had been released by Philadelphia. The design goes away from the posed photography of the 1964-1967 sets and instead uses action or sideline shots. Some partial block outs overlap onto the name title box, making the player “jump off the card!”

Players include: George Andrie, Frank Clarke, Leon Donohue, Mike Gaechter, Walt Garrison, Pete Gent, Cornell Green, Bob Hayes, Chuck Howley, Lee Roy Jordan, Bob Lilly, Tony Liscio, Don Meredith, Ralph Neely, Pettis Norman, Don Perkins, Jethro Pugh, Dan Reeves, Mel Renfro, Lance Rentzel, Willie Townes, Danny Villanueva, Rayfield Wright, and coach Tom Landry.

The first installment in this series was a special Ice Bowl 18-card set. Now RetroCards gives you 24 Dallas Cowboys for your collection. Order here!
