1963 Post CFL Football Cards

There are 160 cards in the 1963 Post Cereal CFL set. The cards were printed on the backs of Post cereal boxes and cut from the boxes by hand. The set contains 16 to 18 cards for each of the CFL teams, a large number compared to most football card sets. It includes a few players who had short careers in the NFL or AFL, but who never appeared on American football cards. I have marked most of those players in the Notes column below.

A huge thanks to Larry Oleskiw for providing the images for this set.
