1967 Cowboys: Beautiful In Blue

1967 Topps football cards, Dallas Cowboys. RetroCards, custom football cards

The Dallas Cowboys officially arrived in 1966 with a 10-3-1 record and won the Eastern Conference by a 1.5 game margin.  Coinciding with their rise in stature and popularity was their first Thanksgiving Day game in 1966.  Every other franchise was uninterested and the shrewd Tex Schramm jumped at the opportunity to foist his young franchise in the TV-friendly world of pro football. Though the Cowboys lost the NFL Championship to the Packers, the Cowboys were the exciting team on the rise.

This somewhat familiar 1967 design was used for a full set of your favorite Cowboys stars.  You may recognize this design that was initially used for AFL players (while the NFL players were contractually obligated to appear on the Philadelphia Gum cards), this design still looks fresh and here the Cowboys are sporting their sharp blue away uniforms.

The 1967 RetroCards set features:  Don Meredith, Bob Lilly, Buddy Dial, Bob Hayes, Tony Liscio, Willie Townes, Ralph Neely, Pettis Norman, Leon Donohue, Obert Logan, Lee Roy Jordan, Mike Gaechter, Jim Colvin, Dickie Daniels, Walt Garrison, John Niland, Cornell Green, and Craig Morton.  Order here!

Many RetroCard collectors use their new custom cards for autographs.  As you saw in a blog post last month, a former player (Amos Bullocks) received a RetroCard of himself for Father's Day from his daughter.  We have been in contact with many players who still supplement their income by signing autographs and RetroCards aids many players in the autograph industry.
