Uncut Sheet of 1970 Topps Super Football Cards

Here is the configuration of a full uncut sheet of 1970 Topps Super football cards. 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. On an actual uncut sheet of these cards, there are no lines between the cards--the lines here are an effect of scanning them individually. Also, though the finished cards have rounded corners, on an uncut sheet they still have their square corners, so the cards appear rectangular. You can see a picture of an actual sheet here.

Oddly, all of the cards have a blue background except one: O.J. Simpson. I don't have a good theory as to why, but it does appear that a number of the photos were taken outdoors, with the blue sky in the background. 1970 was also the year of O.J.'s rookie card, which use the same photo.

This is how the cards are arranged by number on an uncut sheet. The cards in the middle column, numbers 29-35 appear only once on the sheet, while the rest appear twice. This is why cards 29-35 are short prints.

2 9 16 23 30 2 9 16 23
