1987T Dallas Cowboys

1987 was a trying year for the NFL as a Player Strike interrupted the season, resulting in teams fielding replacement players for three games. The Cowboys, with their superior scouting fielded one of the strongest “Strike Teams” and had the NFL replacement players played all season, the Cowboys may have won the Super Bowl!  Back in reality, the Cowboys posted a 5–9 record in regular “union” games, effectively ushering in the end of the Landry era. 

RetroCards gives focus to this strange season with two 18-card sets.  The first contains players that did not have a card in 1987: Gordon Banks, Vince Albritton, Nate Newton, Garth Jax, Reggie Collier, Gene Lockhart, Ray Alexander, Doug Cosbie, Everson Walls, Johnny Holloway, Roger Ruzek, Ron Francis, Danny Noonan, Mark Tuinei, Ron Burton, Everson Walls, and Todd Fowler.  There is also a team card and a yellow bordered “box bottom” card of Herschel Walker.

Series II focuses on the replacement players and players who crossed the picket line who did not have a regular card in 1987. First the replacement players: Kevin Sweeney, Kelvin Edwards, Tommy Haynes, Cornell Burbage, Mike Dwyer, and Robert Williams.  Players who crossed: Randy White, Ed “Too Tall” Jones, Mike Renfro, Johnny “Lam” Jones, Robert Lavette, Paul McDonald, Kevin Brooks, Kelvin Martin, and Karl Powe.  A Cowboys management card featuring Schramm and Landry gets a special place in series two along with a Strike Team card, and a yellow bordered “box-bottom” card featuring Tony Dorsett.
