Love Them Cowboy Blues: 1979 Hockey Design
The 1978 Cowboys were a dominating team that had speed, strength, and finesse. Their final Super Bowl appearance of the decade ended in a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, and 1979 would be Roger Staubach’s last season. That team was packed with big contributors, fan favorites, and characters who spent many years with the Cowboys. RetroCards has several sets honoring that mid-late 70s Cowboy team with NHL, MLB, and NBA card designs. This one, a great design from a 1979 Hockey set, showcases the Cowboys in their blue away jersey’s, which seldom happened with their cards during this era.
Players include: Tony Dorsett, Roger Staubach, Robert Newhouse, Pat Donovan, Preston Pearson, Butch Johnson, Billy Joe Dupree, Drew Pearson, Danny White, Jethro Pugh, Bob Breunig, Ed “Too Tall” Jones, Aaron Kyle, Harvey Martin, Cliff Harris, Thomas Henderson, Rafael Septien, and Tom Landry.
