Random Card of the Day


Friday, October 6, 2017

Year: 1967

Set: Philadelphia (Rate)

Card: #166 Jerry Stovall


“ I know next to nothing about this brand...I know they did mostly football and I think a couple of non-sports issues, but that is the limit on knowledge. I think Topps owns the rights to their concepts now but not 100% sure on that. The front design is really good in my book, and the yellow borders really set it off. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ More vintage football. I like this picture too. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ Love the old football cards.....something about them is so darn edgy....the way the NFL used to be. ” -tbshaw

“ Do not rub the coin on the back like it tells you too. ” -carthage44

“ Vintage Football Rah Rah Rah! ” -captkirk42

“ Nice vintage card . I'm not into football ,but I'd collect this set 'cause it looks cool. ” -uncaian

“ A really super player. As I usually say, a team logo on front would have been nice ” -NJDevils

“ If I could go back in time it'd be to buy nickel wax packs of Philadelphia cards at the local five and dime store. The '66 set were what started me in collecting, but the '67 is just as loved. ” -Sportzcommish

“ More great vintage football! Nice basic front (with the shield, but unfortunately no logo). But the back not so exciting. ” -kents_stuff

“ Cool. I'm not sure I've ever owned a card from this set. Philadelphia did some nice stuff back in the day of two leagues. ” -switzr1

“ Love the older cards. Terrible scan of front of card. ” -cjjt

“ I like it. Early football I great! ” -muskie027

I too enjoy the look of classic cards. Not so busy on the Pics, backs have stats, trivia and player bio too. Wish they made them like this today, or yesterday rather bcz after this protesting our flag and freedom mess I will never turn an NFL game on again! If NBA does it & odds are they will, goodbye Too! NASCAR prays in Jesus name, plays the anthem and sings with forces there saluting and hats off and I saw many people crying last race thru the sunglasses when it was said that we stand in NASCAR for our country & those who keep it safe! God Bless them for that too. That isn't politics for me, it's duty and thankfulness that all should respect. Happy collecting guys and gals.....

Personally, I don't have a problem with NFL (or any other sport) players doing their protests. I read the memo they sent to the NFL commissioner. I may not agree 100% with the reasons (75% solid), but I do see their point, and what they have done has brought attention and awareness to the problems they see. Their method is much better than the events that occurred in Ferguson, MO, etc. The protesters there were bashed for being violent, the NFL protests are far from that. Peaceful protests - can't get more American than that! And to think that they have no reason or right to protest is being uninformed of what is happening in the USA. And if you didn't read the memo the NFL players sent to the NFL offices, please do so before condemning these players. It changed my mind when I read it. Again, I don't agree with 100% of it, but that wasn't the important part. The important part is that there are reasons behind it, they know what those reasons are, and whether I agree with all of them or not, some of them are very valid and need the national attention to rectify them. (I would be willing to bet that most, if not all, of the people who are against the NFL players for doing this have not read their memo. And when I say most, I'm not talking 51%, I'm talking 95%.)

I thought what the Dallas Cowboys did Week 3 in Arizona was the ideal way of handling it - they showed their team unity and support of the other NFLers by taking the knee before the anthem, then honoring the country by standing for the anthem.

The part I am most sad about with this, is the protests are to attempt to bring about a better, less-divided nation, and all it did was divide it further - in some cases across different lines than where the divisions already were. If only everyone could see it for what it actually is.

Sorry for the long post, but I feel very strongly about this. If we take away the ability to protest peacefully, we're going to wind up with something no one wants.

Well said, Vrooomed. There's no disrespect to the military or to the country or to the flag. Players want people to recognize and talk about our (serious) problems. I really have trouble understanding why that's so offensive (far less offensive than wearing a flag as clothing, as so many "patriotic" people do). I hope the people who are so offended have spoken sincerely with a black person -- yes even a rich, "privileged" one --  about their fears for themselves and their children when they do things I do every day. I've been inappropriately stopped by police twice in my life. They immediately apologized and seemed sheepish. That is most certainly not how people who look different from me are treated. So, go ahead, take a knee; start a conversation.

But that's not what this thread is about and I'll avoid getting into further serious political discussion here. Because this site is in part an escape from all of that.

This is a nice vintage card that I'd like if I collected football, which I did for about two years as a kid. Wonder where those cards went.... I probably traded them for baseball cards.

Peace.

The Philadelphia sets diminished in quality, by my standards, in 1966 and 1967 because the number of cards in the sets failed to increase with the addition of the Atlanta and New Orleans expansion teams.

Once you set foot on the field, you are a performer.   Paid for by the owners who are paid for by the fans.    If you want to protest, do it outside of your workplace as most of us have to do..  The gutless owners are simply trying to be PC.    Wait til more owners want new stadiums, like San Diego. When the taxpayers stop footing the bill, where will they all move?.

I have a bigger issue with the league and networks using it as a publicity stunt ("hey, here's a replay of the kneeling you missed if you tuned in late" actually happened on Red Zone, 2 weeks ago), than I have with the players doing it.  I genuinely don't see the point of a national anthem before a domestic sporting event, any more than singing the national anthem before shaving. Other than playoff games and all star games, I don't remember anthems being part of the TV broadcast until the last couple years.

I recognize equally the player's right to kneel, and the fan's right to turn the channel. But the players need to recognize that their political statement should cause some backlash; otherwise it isn't really a political statement. Don't do something meant to offend the "establishment", then complain about people taking offense.

At the end of the day, ratings determine everything in showbiz, and sponsors will pressure the league to intervene if they don't like the content they see, just like any other tv broadcast.  Then we will see where the league's priorities are. And I'll take eleven Kaepernicks over one Ray Rice any day.

Never understood why one year PHILADELPHIA (Swell Gum) had cars in the background of the Cleveland browns players.  But I loved the four years they had the NFL rights and Topps was stuck with the AFL.

Another collector's wife told my wife of 3 months,  "Don't let it bother you, they say they collect baseball cards, we say they collect cardboard pictures of men"

“It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone. You count on it, rely on it to buffer the passage of time, to keep the memory of sunshine and high skies alive, and then just when the days are all twilight, when you need it most, it stops. Today, October 2, a Sunday of rain and broken branches and leaf-clogged drains and slick streets, it stopped and summer was gone.”
