1960-1969 Football Cards

The 1960s were a memorable era for football card collecting and include a strong lineup of former greats and iconic designs. The main card companies during this period consist of Topps, Fleer, and Philadelphia Gum Company. They combined to offer collectors products in every year of the 1960s. Vintage football cards still rank behind baseball, but the 1960s helped close the gap.

The most valuable 1960s rookies are Dick Butkus, Joe Namath, and Mike Ditka. Other popular rookie options include Fran Tarkenton, Ray Nitschke, Gale Sayers, Fred Biletnikoff, Lance Alworth, Bob Lilly, Ernie Davids, Deacon Jones, Brian Piccolo, Larry Csonka, Don Meredith, Roman Gabriel, Jack Kemp and Lenny Dawson.
