The big city names/fonts at the tops of the cards really draws me in. The AFL is fascinating to me. It is one of my favorite topics/leagues to learn about: colorful, exciting, and high-flying!

For the next few nights I am going to share pics of my set one team at a time until I am finished. I will be the first to admit the pics are low quality. I did the best I could to take the pics with my phone and fighting the glare and other factors, but there are some good pics. I really, really wanted to have larger scale pics showing the full 21 or so cards for each team, but I just couldn't pull it off without them being too large or too blurry. As it is, they just look so great together! Football season is upon us, so let's celebrate with a great, colorful set starting with the Boston Patriots!
I agree, I really like all Tall boy efforts. The 65 FB I had many as a 7 year old and put the set back together a few years back. I always thought the Ernie ladd card was a sleeper tough one.

IMHO, the best is saved for last. If I love the rest of this tall boy set, then I really, really LOVE the Chargers cards. Throughout the 60s, the San Diego cards really jump out at me, and these do not disappoint! Thanks for viewing this thread (with the sometimes subpar photography ) as I have displayed the set one team at a time. I hope it has been enjoyable for some of you to look at. They make my day a little happier.
