After a heart-breaking second place finish in the NFL’s Western Division in 1959, the Chicago Bears were ready to make a run for the Championship in 1960. Although that did not come to be, the Bears still had one of the most feared defenses in the game.
RetroCards is now making available our earliest Bears team set, featuring many of those great “Monsters of the Midway” players. Pro-Bowl competitors Fred Williams, Joe Fortunato, Larry Strickland, Bob Kilcullen and J.C. Caroline are the main features of this set. Other popular players among Bears fans also include Johnny Morris, Angelo Coia, Roger Davis, Charlie Sumner and John Aveni.
The special treat for Bears historians is the several players not before featured on a card. Among them are John Mellekas, Bill Bishop, Justin Rowland, Jack Johnson and the namesake of our Nation’s second president, John Adams. Furthermore, early cards of Willard Dewveall, who would achieve notoriety in the AFL, and future Packers super-sub quarterback Zeke Bratkowski are also included. This is a great set, not only for loyal Bears fans, but for any students of the game. Order your set here!
