Unfortunately for the Redskins, they were going up against the undefeated Dolphins and lost to them in a close contest in Super Bowl VII.
This 24-card 1973 Washington Redskins set features that fabled 1972 season and fills in some players who didn’t have a Redskin card for that year. One of my favorite players to never have had a card, Herb Mul-Key, is here along with: Mack Alston, Bill Brundige, Bob Brunet, George Burman, Speedy Duncan, Alvin Haymond, Terry Hermeling, Ken Houston, Mike Hull, Jon Jaqua, Jimmie Jones, Sonny Jurgensen, Harold McClinton, Clifton McNeil, Jack Pardee, Jeff Severenson, Manny Sistrunk, Roosevelt Taylor, Rusty Tillman, Ted Vactor, Sam Wyche, and of course, George Allen. An NFC Champions team card is the final card in this fun set. Get yours here!

One of my favorite pitchers from my childhood was Frank Tanana. Many times I watched him beat the Brewers at County Stadium and I always followed his career - 21 years in the majors! In the mid to late 70s he was the number 2 pitcher behind Nolan Ryan and played in three All-Star Games (1976-1978) but he was just another durable pitcher with a tireless arm...rare these days.
RetroCards will be featuring several new baseball-style cards with some familiar faces that should have had cards certain years. Look for team sets and single players in the coming months.
