Uncut Sheet of 1966 Philadelphia Football Cards

First Half-Sheet

The diagram below shows the configuration of an uncut half-sheet of 1966 Philadelphia football cards. It is modeled after an actual sheet that appeared recently in an online auction. 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.

The cards in rows 7-10 of this half-sheet are relatively easy to find, so I believe that they were the duplicates on the other half-sheet. The 66 duplicates, or double prints, are not documented in the price guides.

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 table shows how the cards were arranged by number on the sheet. As I said on the Topps virtual sheet pages, the pseudo-random numbering 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 system of numbering 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.

55 96 107 67 97 109 121 131 151 122 134
163 182 166 16 27 191 17 194 18 197 149
138 152 162 85 153 164 83 147 25 82 146
99 81 123 100 79 124 196 77 125 137 75
43 31 108 44 29 110 47 28 111 50 26
10 61 87 11 59 89 12 58 94 13 57
30 4 45 32 5 193 33 6 48 34 186
76 86 101 78 88 102 80 90 103 116 69

Second Half-Sheet

I have not seen an example of the second half-sheet, but I have pieced together some of it by looking at badly miscut cards. I have also concluded that 1965, 1966, and 1967 Philadelphia sheets all had the same numbering scheme, so if I figure out a piece of one of those sheets, it applies to the other sets, as well.

Here are the pieces I have put together from second half of the uncut sheet:

Ron Bull - 1966 Philadelphia football card #30 Perry Lee Dunn - 1966 Philadelphia football card #4 Gene Hickerson - 1966 Philadelphia football card #45 Mike Ditka - 1966 Philadelphia football card #32 Dan Grimm - 1966 Philadelphia football card #5 Jim Steffen - 1966 Philadelphia football card #193 Joe Fortunato - 1966 Philadelphia football card #33 Alex Hawkins - 1966 Philadelphia football card #6 Walter Roberts - 1966 Philadelphia football card #48 Bobby Joe Green - 1966 Philadelphia football card #34 Paul Krause - 1966 Philadelphia football card #186
Wayne Walker - 1966 Philadelphia football card #76 Tom Moore - 1966 Philadelphia football card #86 Bill Munson - 1966 Philadelphia football card #101 Lions Play - 1966 Philadelphia football card #78 Bart Starr - 1966 Philadelphia football card #88 Merlin Olsen - 1966 Philadelphia football card #102 Herb Adderley - 1966 Philadelphia football card #80 Willie Wood - 1966 Philadelphia football card #90 James Stiger - 1966 Philadelphia football card #103 Bobby Walden - 1966 Philadelphia football card #116 Alex Karras - 1966 Philadelphia football card #69
