The 1971 Football was the first set I collected (along with 1971 baseball, basketball, and hockey). I'm sure I still have my original cards, someplace.

However, for some reason, I can not recall the pin-ups. Were there packs that didn't contain them?!?.

I'm pretty sure that only the 10 cent packs had a pin up. The bigger packs (cello and rack) did not. Maybe your collection was built with those instead of the smaller dime packs.


I encourage you to dig out your 71's and finish it off.
I would not encourage you to build over 20 sets. That's foolish

Default Categorically

Put this in the category of ď who could possibly careĒ but I finally got my sets put in binders.
I think I was shooting for 20 sets when we last discussed, but I had so many cards in boxes, that would have short changed my effort.
So I acquired some more big binders and a couple more boxes of 9 pockets and went to work recently.

Iíve slotted another 9 partial sets. Yup 29 sets.
My dupes Box is down to maybe 300 cards of 1st series commons.
When I say dupes , it means I have already put the first 29 sets in the books.

Sets 1 and 2 share a binder, slotted 1-263, then repeated.
Sets 3,4,5 are slotted 3 players per page, see the picture above. Thatís a neat orientation.
Sets 6, 7, 8, 9 , 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 are in the infamous full page per player order.
Sets 15, 16, 17 go back to the 3 player orientation. I like the way that looks so I did it for the 3rd time on sets 18, 19, 20.
Then this week I went for another instance of 9 per page, arriving at the 29 set mark.

Now, before you think I am crazy (too late) , I only have 16 full sets . I need quite a few Bradshaw, Namath and Mean Joe Greene cards. I easily have 40 of commons like Jim Butler and Rick Redman. So I am actively collecting 20 sets, those last 9 are bonus

I warned you that few would care LOL

Clearly you are crazy Brian, but I love that craziness. I have too many cards that I like to spend so much time on just one set, but I absolutely adore the 1971 set. It easily ranks as my favorite set of ones in my lifetime of collecting. I started in 1973, but kids in the neighborhood still had 1969-72 around, so I managed to trade for them. The Merlin Olsen card is one of the best cards from any set. How could anyone not love that card?

I was among the ones who didn't care for this set that much over the years, even though it was the first set I ever collected as a kid. But, a lot of these came my way that were in beautiful shape, then a dealer at a local show had bunch of very nice ones, and I was hooked. I am nearly finished with a NM set and have gathered dupes along the way to be a little more than half way on a second set in EX. And, along with the '71 Kelloggs baseball, I have probably enjoyed the pursuit of nice copies of these more than any other set.

Kudos to all above with their collections.
