1977 Touchdown Club Football Cards

There are 50 cards in the 1977 Touchdown Club football card set. At 2 3/8 inches by 3 3/8 inches, the cards are smaller than standard sports cards. According to Beckett, the cards were sold in complete sets, they came with the players' and coaches' mailing addresses, and they were intended to be autographed. The cards are numbered, and the backs of the cards contain brief biographies of the subjects.
