Uncut Sheet of 1967 Philadelphia Football Cards

The picture below shows what I believe was the configuration of an uncut half-sheet of 1967 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.

I have not actually seen a 1967 Philadelphia sheet, but I have concluded that 1965, 1966, and 1967 Philadelphia sheets all had the same numbering scheme. You can see my reasoning toward the bottom of this page. I have seen a picture of a 1966 Philadelphia half-sheet, and I used the numbering of that sheet to produce this one.

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 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.

How did I conclude that 1965, 1966, and 1967 Philadelphia sheets had the same numbering? Well, the four Philadelphia sets, 1964-1967, are very similar in composition: they have the same number of cards, the cards are grouped by team, the teams are in alphabetical ordering, etc. Because of all the similarities, I thought the sheets might have been numbered the same, as well. So I found a handful of 1965 and 1967 cards that were miscut so badly that I could identify the adjacent cards, and I compared the numbering of the cards to the 1966 sheet. In each case, the cards with the same two numbers were also adjacent on the 1966 sheet. From this I concluded that the sheets from all three years had the same numbering scheme. (The 1964 Philadelphia sheet had a different scheme.)

Here are some of the 1967 miscuts:

This miscut Marion Rushing card has a sliver of Lee Roy Jordan's rookie card on its left. The Jordan is card number 54; the Rushing is card number 9. Cards 54 and 9 are adjacent on the 1966 Philadelphia sheet, as well.

This Clancy Williams card is showing a bit of Fran Tarkenton's card on its left. The Tarkenton card is number 106, and Clancy is number 95. Cards 106 and 95 are also neighbors on the 1966 Philadelphia sheet.

Finally, this Bennie McRae card is showing a sliver of Dick Schafrath's orange helmet. The Schafrath card is number 45, and the McRae is number 32. Cards 45 and 32 are also adjacent on the 1966 Philadelphia sheet.

I also have a few badly miscut cards with numbers that do not appear on this half-sheet. With those I can begin to construct the other half-sheet. Because the numbering of the 1965, 1966, and 1967 sheets is the same--or at least I am assuming so--I can use miscut cards from any of the three years to build the other half-sheet.
