Topps 1973 Football set consists of 528 cards, each measuring 2-1/2" by 3-1/2”. The set was the first of ten consecutive years in which Topps would manufacture 528 cards in a single series. Each card bears a color photograph with the athlete’s name identified at the top, his team and position noted along the bottom, and a colored pennant-like banner along the left side. Card backs include highlights, statistics, cartoon, and a trivia question and answer. The first six cards in the set are statistical league leader cards. The set is anchored by Terry Bradshaw (#15), George Blanda (#25), Fran Tarkenton (#60), Dick Butkus (#300), Joe Namath (#400), Johnny Unitas (#455), Roger Staubach and Steve Spurrier (#481), as well as by the rookie cards of Ken Anderson (#34), Art Shell (#77), Franco Harris (#89), Jack Ham (#115), Dan Dierdorf (#322), Jim Langer (#341), Jack Youngblood (#343) and Ken Stabler (#487).
