1963 Fleer Football Cards

1963 Fleer football card wrapperThe 1963 Fleer football card set contains cards of 88 AFL players, plus an unnumbered checklist. Three of the cards are short prints, but the short prints are not nearly as scarce as the price guides indicate. For details, see my 1963 Fleer virtual uncut sheet.

1963 Fleer cards with numbers divisible by four were printed both with and without a red stripe on the bottom of the back. The cards without the stripe were those situated along the bottom of the uncut sheet. I don't show the striped and non-striped variations here, but my uncut sheet page includes some pictures of them.

Also see my blog article, F is for Fleer, for an overview of the 1960-1963 Fleer football card sets.

Rookie cards of Pro Football Hall of Famers in the 1963 Fleer set: Lance Alworth, Len Dawson, Nick Buoniconti.
