The 1962 season was not kind to the Los Angeles Rams.  Eventual Hall of Famer Bob Waterfield, the team's head coach in 1960 and 1961, came back in 1962 and coached the Rams to a 1–7 record before being fired. Harland Svare, Waterfield's successor, could only manage a 0–5–1 record to finish a dismal season.  Despite the poor record, the Rams began adding pieces that would result in the powerful team the Rams came to be during the 1966-1969 seasons.

RetroCards added 18 supplemental Rams to the 1963 set:  Lamar Lundy, Bill Jobko, Art Perkins, Larry Hayes, Carver Shannon, Duane Allen, Charlie Cowan, Joe Scibelli, Jack Pardee, Charley Britt, Larry Stephens, Art Hunter, Bobby Smith, John Adams, Jim Boeke, Alvin Hall, Mike Henry, and Terry Baker.  Check the whole set out here.
