1969 Ron Santo

The 1969 Topps football cards were certainly colorful. The players' photos were set against a brightly colored background. The cards also included a large team logo. This would be the last time Topps would use team logos on their football cards until 1982. Although Topps was licensed by the players union to produce images of the players, they weren't licensed with the NFL therefore could not use any logos which were the property of the league.

  1. Nicely done....always thought that Topps making cards of behemoth football players against shocking pick backgrounds was very odd, to say the least. But still grab them at shows when I come across nicely conditioned ones.
