Retrocards is now presenting its first set for Vikings collectors with an expansion to this attractive and popular 1963 team set. An expansion team in 1961, the Minnesota Vikings franchise was beginning to take shape. Our 18-card set features cards of some lesser known players, familiar to Vikings historians, such as Jim Battle, Leon Clarke, Tom Franckhauser, Chuck Lamson, Dave O’Brien, Mike Rabold and Tommy Wilson. Some players who achieved notoriety with other teams, but got their start with Minnesota include Lee Calland, Don Hultz, John McCormick, Ray Poage and Steve Stonebreaker.
Then again, this set also includes stalwart lineman Larry Bowie, and “face of the franchise” fullback Bill Brown, among others. Overall, a fun set for Vikings fans, or anyone who loved the style and look of the 1963 set.
