Uncut Sheet of 1965 Philadelphia Football Cards
I have not seen an uncut sheet of 1965 Philadelphia football cards, but I have pieced together sections of the sheet by looking at partial sheets and miscut cards. Also, by comparing miscut 1965, 1966, and 1967 Philadelphia cards, I have concluded that the sheets from the three sets all had the same numbering scheme. Thus, if I learn something about the uncut sheet from one set, I can also apply it to the other two. I have seen an uncut half-sheet of 1966 Philadelphia cards, so I was able to construct a virtual half-sheet of 1965 Philadelphia cards, as well.
The picture below shows what I believe was the configuration of an uncut half-sheet of 1965 Philadelphia football cards. This half-sheet contains 110 different cards, with 22 duplicates, for a total of 132 cards. The other half-sheet contained the remaining 88 cards in the set, plus 44 that appear on this half-sheet. A total of 66 cards were
duplicated--or "double printed"--on the 264-card full sheet. The double prints are not documented in the price guides, but I have identified them in the Gallery.
If you hold your cursor above a card, your browser should show you the number of the card and the name of the player. Clicking on a card will bring up the full-sized scan. (A real uncut sheet would not have black lines between the cards--that is an effect of scanning them individually.)
The following table shows how the cards were arranged by number on the sheet. The bottom six rows hold the 66 double prints in the set: the bottom two rows are repeated on the top of this half-sheet, and the remaining four rows are repeated on the other half-sheet. The cells in green represent single prints.
Here are the pieces I have put together from second half of the uncut sheet:
This is how the pieces of the second half-sheet were numbered:
