1968 Dallas Cowboys: One More Philadelphia Set

This RetroCards 24-card set is a continuation of the Philadelphia Gum Football sets of the sixties. Philadelphia released cards of NFL players between 1964-1967. This set of Dallas Cowboy cards is what a set may have looked like in 1968, if one had been released by Philadelphia. The design goes away from the posed photography of the 1964-1967 sets and instead uses action or sideline shots. Some partial block outs overlap onto the name title box, making the player “jump off the card!”Players include: George Andrie, Frank Clarke, Leon Donohue, Mike Gaechter, Walt Garrison, Pete Gent, Cornell Green, Bob Hayes, Chuck Howley, Lee Roy Jordan, Bob Lilly, Tony Liscio, Don Meredith, Ralph Neely, Pettis Norman, Don Perkins, Jethro Pugh, Dan Reeves, Mel Renfro, Lance Rentzel, Willie Townes, Danny Villanueva, Rayfield Wright, and coach Tom Landry.

The first installment in this series was a special Ice Bowl 18-card set. Now RetroCards gives you 24 Dallas Cowboys for your collection. Get it here!

1978-79 Milwaukee Bucks: Green & Growing

The 1978-79 Basketball set was always a favorite, with the vertical team name and two photos per card – an action shot and a head shot – a sharp looking design.

The Milwaukee Buck took second place in the Midwest Division in 1977-78 and had built a fine team under Don Nelson – a team that would take first place in their division every year from 1980-1986. This Milwaukee Bucks team set features a couple up-and-coming players like Alex English, Lloyd Walton, Ernie Grunfeld, and Kent Benson plus some older roll players such as Norm Van Lier and Jim Eakins. Also included are coach Don Nelson, GM Wayne Embry, a team card, and pop artist Robert Indiana, who painted the classic design on the MECCA Arena floor, which was completed for the 1977-78 season.

This set is coming soon and is one of four series of custom RetroCards featuring many familiar players who didn’t have cards in the original 1978-79 set. Get yours here.
