1968T Green Bay Packers

The Super Bowl victory against the Raiders in January 1968 marked Vince Lombardi's final game coaching the Packers.  Though he maintain his General Manager role in 1968, he wouldn't coach again until the 1969 season with the Redskins when he took the head coach and GM role.  But that only lasted one season as anaplastic carcinoma became terminal and he died a year later.  Packer fans hold that final Lombardi year close to their hearts.

The 1968 Topps design gave the 1967 Super Bowl participants their own horizontal design with illustrated artwork as the background.  1968 was the first year that the NFL and AFL players were combined in the same Topps set and split 219 between 26 teams.  That left very few players per team and consequently, many popular players didn't make the cut in this set.

RetroCards fills in many Packer gaps with this 22-card set featuring Hall Of Famers Willie Wood, Henry Jordan, Willie Davis, Forrest Gregg, Dave Robinson, and Coach Vince Lombardi.  Other overlooked players are Travis Williams, Tom Brown, Ron Kostelnik, Bob Long, Jerry Kramer, Don Horn, Fuzzy Thurston, Don Chandler, Lee Roy Caffey, Bucky Pope, Chuck Mercein, Bob Skoronski, Lionel Aldridge, plus three post season cards featuring the 1967 Packer playoff appearances.
