1965 Philadelphia Gum Football Card Lot (143) Incl. Paul Warfield, Carl Eller etc.Go Back
The 1965 Philadelphia Football card set consists of 198 cards, measuring the standard 2-1/2 by 3-1/2 inches. Similar in design to the company’s freshman release the previous year, one noticeable addition was made, giving the cards a distinct and official look. For the first time in football trading card history, the NFL logo was placed on the front of the card. Its presence also served as a reminder to consumers that it was the Philadelphia Gum Company and not their New York-based rival, Topps, that had the rights to produce NFL trading cards. Topps was relegated to printing cards of AFL teams and its players.
Presented is a partial 1965 Philadelphia Gum football card set. There are 142/198 of the cards in the set. One card is a double #152. The cards are in starter set condition with some better than others. See photos for condition assessment.
The lot also includes cards of future Hall of Fame players; Paul Warfield (#41), Dick LeBeau (#64) and Carl Eller (#105).
