For the third straight year, the Philadelphia Gum Company issued a 198-card set featuring players from the NFL, while Topps featured the AFL players in its own set. Although all four Philadelphia sets seem to share a general design, 1966 was the only year the player info can be found at the top of the card.

Like in all Philadelphia sets, a large photo shows the player in a posed helmetless shot. A solid-colored box above the player contains his name, position and team. The NFL logo is placed inside the box in the upper left corner. The border is white, but unlike previous years it doesn't also separate the player photo from the solid block. Backs feature a green color and two white boxes. The upper left corner gives the player's name, team, position and vital stats. The white box on the left has a biography about the player, while the one on the right features a picture of another player with a note about which card features the answer to who he is. Below that player's picture is the answer from another card and a helmet-shaped icon that has a card number inside.

The set is numbered according to team, with players arranged in alphabetical order by their last name. There are 13 cards for every team, with 11 players, a team photo and a play card. Unlike the previous year's sets, there is an uncluttered photo of the play in progress. A card with referee signals is included in the set as well. There are also two checklist cards, which make up the last two cards in the set.
Two cards feature a pair of players, and both have quarterbacks in action. One has Earl Morrall and his center Bob Scholtz, while the other shows Roman Gabriel handing off to Dick Bass.

The first cards of the Atlanta Falcons appear in this set. As an expansion team, they have a logo card instead of a team card because there wasn't a 1965 team to take a photo of. Their play card is replaced by one that features a roster. Key rookies include Dick Butkus, Gayle Sayers, Bob Hayes, Chuck Howley, Gene Hickerson and Bob Brown.
