1972 NFLPA Iron Ons Football Cards

The price guides refer to these as "1972 NFLPA Fabric Cards," but they are actually patches. In the original marketing materials, there were called "Iron Ons." The set comprises 35 patches, but not all NFL teams are represented. For details, see my blog article, New in the Gallery: 1972 NFLPA Iron Ons.
