1961F Dallas Texans

In 1959, Dallas was awarded a professional football franchise.  No, not just the Dallas Cowboys of the NFL.  The Dallas Texans, later to be known as the Kansas City Chiefs, played their first season in the fledgling AFL in 1960, finishing a respectable 8-6 in the new 8-team league.   In 1961, AFL cards were printed in several venues, representing the league that would rival the more established NFL for the next decade.

By popular request, RetroCards has finally created a full 18-card team set for the Texans in the popular 1961F style.  Students of the game will be pleased with the inclusion of many stars of the young franchise, such as Jerry Mays, E.J. Holub, Jerry Cornelison, Sherrill Headrick, Jon Gilliam, and Smokey Stover.   Young players who would achieve greater notoriety with other AFL teams include Paul Rochester, Curley Johnson, Dave Grayson, and Frank Jackson.  Lesser known Texans also include Tony Romeo, Al Reynolds, Duane Wood, Dave Webster and others help to round out the set.

Iconic Head Coach Hank Stram, and a commemorative Team Card also highlight this set. If you are a fan of the Kansas City Chiefs franchise, a student of AFL history, or maybe even personally remember the Dallas Texans, this is your chance to turn back the clock and relive those early days of the AFL.
