About this set: The 1972 Football Set is the one football set that I’ve always wanted to collect. When my brother and I were younger we agreed that I would collect Baseball cards and he would collect Football cards (Basketball was fair game). Of all the Football cards he collected I enjoyed watching him put together this set the most. We would spend hours looking at them through warped plastic sheets. I also remember him going from dealer to dealer at card shows looking for those elusive high numbers.
One day I hope to have the entire set graded, even those high numbers, and maybe my brother and I will again spend hours looking at the great 1972 Topps Football collection.
