A Few More Pieces to My Puzzle

1966 Philadelphia Atlanta Falcons Insignia football cardLast year, after looking at a number of badly miscut cards, I concluded that uncut sheets of 1965, 1966, and 1967 Philadelphia football cards all had the same numbering scheme. So, from a picture of a half-sheet of 1966 Philadelphia cards, I was able to construct virtual half-sheets of 1965 and 1967 Philadelphia cards, as well. Unfortunately, I have not seen an example of the other half-sheet from any of the three sets, but I have been slowly piecing one together by looking at more miscut cards. Last weekend I added a few more pieces, and the second half-sheet took more shape. One of the new pieces is shown here: it’s a miscut 1966 Atlanta Falcons card that has a tiny piece of a Don Perkins card in the lower left corner.

To see my progress on the second half-sheet, go to the Uncut Sheets in Progress page and scroll down to the bottom. For a full list of my virtual uncut sheets, see a previous blog article, U is for Uncut Sheets.

    Here’s a 1968 Wendell Hayes, that shows a sliver of the Clem Daniels card beneath it. (It’s not evident from the front, but the top of Clem Daniels name appears on the back of the card)

    Thanks, Jim. That’s one of the sets I have completed uncut sheets for. Here’s a link: 1968 Topps football virtual uncut sheets
