1967 Raiders Go To The Super Bowl
After toiling for seven year with no post-season appearances to date, the Raiders finally put together that championship team, by posting a 13-1 record. 1967 would be the year the Raiders would win the AFL Championship, and represent the league in Super Bowl II.
The attractive 1967 AFL Raiders team set is one of the most popular in the hobby, and Retrocards now supplements that set with an 18-card set of its own. Superstars represented in this set include George Blanda and Willie Brown, in their first years as Raiders, and Eugene Upshaw, in his would-be rookie card. Other well-known competitors of Raider lore include Pete Banaszak, Tom Keating, Gus Otto, J.R. Williamson, Dan Birdwell, Bill Miller and Warren Wells.
Furthermore, Raider historians will be pleased with these players finally given their due on a card, namely Jim Harvey, Rodger Bird, Bill Laskey, Howie Williams, and the tallest player in pro football history, the 7'0", 300-pound Richard Sligh. Whether you are a fanatic of the Silver-and-Black, a fan of AFL history, or anyone who enjoyed the color and style of the 1967 set, this team set is for you. Coming soon!
