1971T 'Missing' All Stars

Old time collectors recall the attractive and colorful look of the 1971 football set.   Many were also amused by the cartoon player positions in the lower left corner of the cards.  The set was loaded with superstars and future Hall-of-Famers.  The NFC players were colored blue, while the AFC players were depicted with red borders.  Pro Football’s “All-Stars” (as selected by the Sporting News) were dual colored red and blue.

However, as fans of the set began piecing together the line-up of All-Stars there were two quarterbacks, so the set must be honoring the All-Pros of both conferences. Yet, upon completion of the set, it appeared that many of the All-Pros were missing.  Perhaps there was supposed to be a third series printed, in which the other “All-Stars” would appear.

Upon researching the Sporting News All-Pro selections, RetroCards now presents a 14-card set that completes the All-Star lineup.  The second center, Ed Flanagan is included, running back Jess Phillips of the Bengals is also included.   Other superstar greats include Carl Eller, Eugene Upshaw, Ed Budde, Marlin Briscoe, Winston Hill, Ron Yary, Jim Marsalis, and others.  Tom Keating is not a “fifth” All-Star Defensive Tackle.   Rich Jackson, who appears in the 1971 set, is a misprint.  He is supposed to be shown as a Defensive End (as it says on the back of his card).

At long last, Retrocards presents the 1971 “Missing All-Stars” set, so you can now complete your 1971 All-Star lineup.
