1965P Green Bay Packers

The 1964 season ended with a thud as the mighty Packers lost to the St. Louis Cardinals in the Playoff Bowl - a "playoff" game that essentially decided third place.  Yes it seems foolish (it was) but the origin of the game had more to do with showcasing the best NFL teams to battle the up-and-coming AFL.  Another TV game around playoff time could show NFL stars and take market shares away from the rival league.  Lombardi hated it and this loss to the Cardinals strengthened his resolve as the Packers went on to win three straight Championships (1965-1967).

The 1965 Philadelphia Gum Company had the license to produce NFL cards and of the four years they did made cards, the 1965 set rates as one of the nicest.  Because sets were small, teams were only represented by 13 players which left several quality players without a card.  The Packers were stacked with talent and this RetroCards set adds another 24 cards in this style.  Young players like Doug Hart, Ken Bowman, Bob Long, Lionel Aldridge, and Tom Brown get "early" cards and old vets like Max McGee, Bill Anderson, Don Chandler, Jerry Kramer, Norm Masters, Ron Kramer, Hank Gremminger are offered as well.  A special Playoff Bowl card and Coach Vince are two highlights of this fun set.
