1969 Topps Football Cards

1969 Topps football card wrapperThe 1969 Topps football card set contains 264 cards; they were released in two 132-card series. Cards from the two series are easy to tell apart: second series cards have borders, and first series cards do not. The cards are numbered 1-263, with two variations of card 132, the second series checklist. One variation of the second series checklist (the one without borders) was issued with the first series, presumably to alert kids that more cards were forthcoming. To see what uncut sheets of the cards looked like, see my 1969 Topps virtual uncut sheet page.

The backs of some 1969 Topps cards are pieces to a Fran Tarkenton puzzle. This was a fun feature, but it meant that 10 players didn't get the usual stats, cartoon, and write-up on the backs of their cards. Another feature was that the packs also included mini-cards (these days referred to as 4-in-1's) and mini-card albums.
