1975 Topps Dan Dickel
Speaking of me in high school. There I am. Take away the David Letterman-like tooth gap and make the 'stache droop a bit more and you have me.
1972 Topps Bubba Smith Pro Action.
Pro Action cards were Topps' equivalent of the 'In Action' baseball cards. The no-logo helmets suck.
1969 Topps John Mackey
How many way can I love this card? Mackey is a huge favorite of mine. Always was. I had the chance to talk to him a bit when I made my one trip to the Colts' training camp in Westminster, Maryland about the same period of this card. Life was different then. Just a little rope fence around the field. Players standing around with the fans almost next to them watching drills. Sheesh. Good times.
Here's something I learned in tracking down these vintage Colts. 1969 Topps Football cards came in two series and the second series had borders around the photos. Series 1 had 'full bleed' color backgrounds.
1968 Tony Lorick
Look at the '68 Lorick and then back at the '69 Mackey. Topps took a step backwards in design with the '69 set I think.
1967 Philly Gum Lenny Lyles
I was really surprised to find out I had no Colts from the '67 Philly Gum set. I'm sure I had them all in 1967.
1970 Topps Mike Curtis
