1983 Denver Gold: USFL's Most Supported Team
Denver was hungry for more pro football regardless of having the NFL’s Denver Broncos. Colorado residents showed their approval of their new team at the stadium turnstiles by leading the league in attendance with an average of 41,700 fans per game. This attendance came despite posting a losing record of 7–11 and while other team scrambled to ad star players, the Gold made due by signing strategic and affordable players. Offensively, the Gold was led by the solid running game of Harry Sydney and Larry Canada but their passing game was a problem with neither Ken Johnson nor Jeff Knapple...
New Orleans Gets Their Saints For 1967
Coach Tom Fears had the task of building a team with some choice NFL veterans such as Charlie Bradshaw, Jim Taylor, Dave Whitsell, Bill Kilmer and Paul Hornung. The Saints took their stand in the Capitol Division, playing at Tulane Stadium. Like many expansion teams, the Saint only managed a losing record, going 3–11. The veterans were over the hill and Paul Hornung thought it best to retire before taking the field – probably a wise move. Rookies Dan Abramowicz and Dave Rowe were highlights however.

1972 Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl Champs
Next year's champions finally won the big one in January 1972. The Dallas Cowboys became NFL Champions after defeating the Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl VI.

1983 Tampa Bay Bandits

Owner John Bassett put together an exciting team that featured retread NFL journeyman quarterback John Reaves and veterans Danny Buggs, Glen Edwards, Zenon Andrusyshyn and Doug Beaudoin. The pass-first mentality of coach Steve Spurrier paid off as the combined passing accounted for over 4,000 yards and 27 touchdown passes. But as Spurrier often encountered, live by the pass, die by the pass as the Bandits suffered down the stretch by throwing...
1973 Redskins Featuring the Over the Hill Gang
The Redskins made the playoffs in 1971 for the first time in 26 seasons and coach George Allen went for the gusto in his second season with the team. To put the team over the top, Allen adopted a method of bringing in veterans he could count.

Despite injuries to...
1983 New Jersey Generals
The New Jersey Generals made the biggest splash during the inaugural USFL season by signing the biggest college star, Herschel Walker.

No matter because the USFL made a killing by stealing some of colleges biggest stars like Trumaine Johnson, Kelvin, Bryant, Craig James, and Anthony Carter. The Generals had great offense once Walker got rolling, but a low ranking defense accounted for their 6–12 record in 1983. This RetroCards sets concentrates on the 1983 General stars and contributors: Sam Bowers, Gene Bradley, Larry Brodsky,...

This season is notable because the Steeler defense only gave up a total of 28 points total during the the final eight games of the season. Although of those last 8 games, only one team they played made the playoffs, they are often graded higher than all six world championship teams. This 18-card set features: Jim Allen, John Banaszak, Jim...
