1973 Florida Playing Cards

1973 Florida football playing card backThe deck of 1973 University of Florida playing cards contains pictures of coach Doug Dickey and 51 players. At least ten players in the deck later played in the NFL; another three played briefly in the World Football League. Chan Gailey, yet another player in the set, was a head coach for five seasons with the Dallas Cowboys and Buffalo Bills. He is now the offensive coordinator for the New York Jets.

This is a very scarce set; the only deck I have seen is the one I have.
