Current Finest Possible Set Rating: 10.617

Topps 1969 Football set consists of 263 cards, each measuring 2-1/2" by 3-1/2”. The set was issued in two series, with the first series (#s 1-132) printed without borders and the second series (#s 133-263) printed with white borders. With the exception of that difference, each card front features a posed player portrait with a solid color background; the player's name, team logo and name, and position are identified along the bottom border. The backs are black with a green-and-white accent, with ten cards from the second series fitting together to form a Fran Tarkenton puzzle. The set is anchored by the only regular issue card - and rookie card - of Brian Piccolo (#26), as well as key cards of Gale Sayers (#51), Don Meredith (#75), Joe Namath (#100), Dick Butkus (#139) and Bart Starr (#215), plus the rookie card of Larry Csonka (#120). The lack of borders makes the first series especially difficult to find in high grade, with the checklist card (#132) found both with and without borders.
