1953 Oregon Football Cards

There are twenty cards in the 1953 University of Oregon set. The cards are 2.25 by 3.5 inches--slightly narrower than standard cards--and the backs are all the same. The set includes three players who later played in the NFL, and one who played professional football in Canada.

If you have cards from this set that you would like to sell, please send me an email. I am also looking for 1956 and 1958 University of Oregon football cards.
