1968 Baltimore Colts: Hard Luck Season
The 1967 Baltimore Colts team is one that is often forgotten and one of the best "hard luck" teams of the 60s. Coached by Don Shula, the Baltimore Colts posted an 11–1–2 record, which was substantially better than the 9–4–1 Packers or the 9-5 Cowboys – the two 1967 Championship contestants. Despite their record, the Colts missed the playoffs because the Rams, who also had an 11–1–2 record, owned the tie breaker. The following year the Colts had a league-best 13–1 record but were upset by the New York Jets in Super Bowl III. This 22-card RetroCards sets pays homage to this team by giving three Hall of Famers career capper cards (Lenny Moore, Raymond Berry, and Jim Parker) and including several other top Colt players. like: Bill Curry, Mike Curtis, Dennis Gaubatz, Alex Hawkins, Jerry Hill, Roy Hilton, Dale Memmelaar, Lou Michaels, Fred Miller, Jimmy Orr, Jim Parker, Glenn Ressler, Don Shinnick, Charlie Stukes, Dan Sullivan, Dick Szymanski, Bob Vogel, Jim Welch, and coach Don Shula.
