This is a theme I started then abandoned some time ago. I wanted to put Topps baseball cards onto Topps football cards for no good reason at all. I took the same photo Topps used on the baseball set from that year and put it on the football cards from the same year.
Ok, I admit the 1961 Topps football cards are boring. This was probably not the best example to start with but since I decided on using Ron Santo and this was his rookie year, it is what it is.
The 1961 Fleer football was a bit better. It at least it included the team logo for a bit of color.
