I mentioned my future brother in-law at the time gave me about half the set when I was 10. One thing he did was write "N.L. Football" at the top of Bart Starr's card and "A.L. Football" at the top of Namath's. Needless to say I had to upgrade those two cards.
Good point, Erik. I like being able to get AFL and NFL players in the same set starting out. Down the road, I would like to have some of the AFL-specific Fleer sets, too.

Even if you upgrade those cards, you will want to keep the marked ones for the memories. Cool stuff!

I never thought of keeping them Robert. I passed them on to my nephews along with some of the cards I upgraded from that set. I figured their dad gave me several cards years back and this was one way I could pass on some fun to them.

Come to think of it, I gave A LOT of cards to my nephews and the problem is I want them back.

That's a good way to go. They are still in the family, and they have gone full circle. Pretty neat really.

Picked up the '68 Topps poster set from Net54 member Adam (exhibitman) and here are a few of the good ones. Thanks Adam!

Bought this picture of Grange and Senator McKinley leaving a meeting with President Calvin Coolidge just because I love the story about this meeting.

Grange meets Coolidge.jpg

Apparently the conversation went like this:

Senator McKinley: "President, I want to introduce you to George Halas and Red Grange of the Chicago Bears."

The President smiled.

"It's nice to meet you, gentlemen,'' the President said. ''I've always enjoyed animal acts.''

--------------------------------------

Cracks me up every time.
