Uncut Sheet of 1966 Philadelphia Football Cards

Below is a virtual uncut 132-card sheet of 1966 Philadelphia football cards. It is modeled after an actual sheet that appeared recently in an online auction. 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.)

This sheet was originally one half of a full 264-card sheet, such as this 1966 Topps baseball card sheet. There are 198 cards in the 1966 Philadelphia set, and they were all released in a single series, so the whole set would have fit on a full 264-card sheet, with 66 cards being duplicated. The half-sheet shown here contains 110 different cards, with 22 duplicates, so the other half of the full sheet would have contained the 88 remaining cards in the set, plus 44 duplicates. As I show below, the cards in rows 7-10 of the sheet shown here are relatively plentiful, so I believe that they were the duplicates on the other half of the full sheet. The 66 duplicates, or double prints, are not documented in the price guides.

The following table shows how the cards were arranged by number on the sheet. As I said on the Topps virtual sheet pages, this might have been so the cards would appear to be randomly distributed in packs, even if they were packaged in order by row or column. Philadelphia's method of arranging the cards appears to have been less random than Topps's, though. There are many places on the sheet where two players from the same team are three cards apart, in the same row. I can't make out a definite pattern, but the arrangement certainly is not completely random.

163 182 166 16 27 191 17 194 18 197 149

The following table shows, for each card on the sheet above, how many examples PSA had graded 8 or higher at the time of this writing. (I got the numbers from PSA's Population Report.) The last column shows the totals for the rows. Though the star cards skew the results a bit (because people grade more star cards), you can see that there are about half as many PSA 8-or-better cards in rows 3-6 as there are in the other rows. From this I surmise that the cards in rows 1-2 and 7-12 are double prints. Rows 1-2 are repeated in rows 11-12 of this half-sheet, and rows 7-10 would have been repeated on the other half-sheet. I am fairly confident about this, so I marked the double prints in the 1966 Philadelphia set in the Gallery.
