Football memorabilia Collections
Football memorabilia hobbyists collect a vast array of items. Hobbyists collect football cards, wrappers, display boxes, programs, yearbooks, media guides, footballs, helmets, jerseys, books, pennants, buttons, pocket schedules, ticket stubs and team photos. This list is by no means complete.
I love collecting football cards and football memorabilia. I can still remember back in 1965 opening up my first packs of Philadelphia Football cards. Five cards in a pack for five cents, plus a stick of hard sugary pink bubble gum. To a seven-year-old kid, it was a deal that I could not refuse. And what cards were they! I can still remember my first pack had a Pittsburgh Steelers Clarence Peaks card along with a Green Bay Packers Bart Starr card. I looked at those cards over and over again. I studied and memorized the stats that were on the back of those cards. I also bought the tall boy 1965 Topps packs that had great full and long shots of my favorite American Football League players. What players and what a time for football cards.
