This lot features a complete 1964 Philadelphia football card set consisting of 198 total cards. In 1964, the Philadelphia Gum Company secured the rights to produce cards featuring NFL players. 1964 Philadelphia Football was born. It was quite the coup given the fact that the company's longtime rival, Topps, had been making them since 1956. The rights were negotiated in a back-room deal with a former Topps employee, so Topps had little recourse but to switch over to producing cards for the upstart American Football League. As a result, Philadelphia began a four-year string of NFL sets, each containing 198 cards and measuring the standard 2-1/2 by 3-1/2 inches. The key rookie cards in 1964 Philadelphia Football are Herb Adderley (#71) and Merlin Olsen (#91). Other rookies include John Mackey (#3), Willie Davis (#72) and Jim Johnson (#161), to name a few. Veterans anchoring the set include Johnny Unitas (#12), Mike Ditka (#17), Jim Brown (#30), Bob Lilly (#48), Paul Hornung (#78) and Bart Starr (#79).The set remains in remarkably nice condition 55 years later. It was assembled via wax packs by our consignor during 1964 and includes an original 1964 wax pack box. Set includes: 1 Raymond Berry 2 Tom Gilburg 3 John Mackey RC 4 Gino Marchetti 5 Jim Martin 6 Tom Matte RC 7 Jimmy Orr 8 Jim Parker 9 Bill Pellington 10 Alex Sandusky 11 Dick Szymanski 12 Johnny Unitas 13 Colts Team 14 Colts Play of the Year 15 Doug Atkins 16 Ron Bull 17 Mike Ditka 18 Joe Fortunato 19 Willie Galimore 20 Joe Marconi 21 Bennie McRae RC 22 Johnny Morris 23 Richie Petitbon 24 Mike Pyle 25 Roosevelt Taylor RC 26 Bill Wade 27 Bears Team 28 Bears Play of the Year 29 John Brewer 30 Jim Brown 31 Gary Collins RC 32 Vince Costello 33 Galen Fiss 34 Bill Glass 35 Ernie Green RC 36 Rich Kreitling 37 John Morrow 38 Frank Ryan 39 Charley Scales RC 40 Dick Schafrath RC 41 Browns Team 42 Browns Play of the Year 43 Don Bishop 44 Frank Clarke RC 45 Mike Connelly 46 Lee Folkins 47 Cornell Green RC 48 Bob Lilly 49 Amos Marsh 50 Tommy McDonald 51 Don Meredith 52 Pettis Norman RC 53 Don Perkins 54 Guy Reese 55 Cowboys Team 56 Cowboys Play of the Year 57 Terry Barr 58 Roger Brown 59 Gail Cogdill 60 John Gordy 61 Dick Lane 62 Yale Lary 63 Dan Lewis 64 Darris McCord 65 Earl Morrall 66 Joe Schmidt 67 Pat Studstill RC 68 Wayne Walker RC 69 Lions Team 70 Lions Play of the Year 71 Herb Adderley RC 72 Willie Davis RC 73 Forrest Gregg 74 Paul Hornung 75 Henry Jordan 76 Jerry Kramer 77 Tom Moore 78 Jim Ringo 79 Bart Starr 80 Jim Taylor 81 Jesse Whittenton RC 82 Willie Wood 83 Packers Team 84 Packers Play of the Year 85 Jon Arnett 86 Pervis Atkins RC 87 Dick Bass 88 Carroll Dale 89 Roman Gabriel 90 Ed Meador 91 Merlin Olsen RC 92 Jack Pardee RC 93 Jim Phillips 94 Carver Shannon 95 Frank Varrichione 96 Danny Villanueva 97 Rams Team 98 Rams Play of the Year 99 Grady Alderman RC 100 Larry Bowie 101 Bill Brown RC 102 Paul Flatley RC 103 Rip Hawkins 104 Jim Marshall 105 Tommy Mason 106 Jim Prestel 107 Jerry Reichow 108 Ed Sharockman 109 Fran Tarkenton 110 Mick Tingelhoff RC 111 Vikings Team 112 Vikings Play of the Year 113 Erich Barnes 114 Roosevelt Brown 115 Don Chandler 116 Darrell Dess 117 Frank Gifford 118 Dick James 119 Jim Katcavage 120 John LoVetere 121 Dick Lynch RC 122 Jim Patton 123 Del Shofner 124 Y.A.
