The top 10 greatest Football Cards of the 1970s. No #5 - 1970 Topps Len Dawson.

Dignified. Portrait. Painting. Classy. These are the words that describe this card. This was card number one in the 1970 set. The first football card of the 1970s was almost the best card.  Dawson just came off a Super Bowl victory over the Vikings. This was the first year Topps was not allowed to use NFL Logos so they made a great portrait design to hide that fact. This is almost like a glamour shot. Leading by his chin with his hair combed, Dawson looks like a Super Bowl winning QB.

  1. I was all ready to disagree, but I kept an open mind and read your thoughts. I'm on board. Nice call!
