1965 Philadelphia Football

1965 Philadelphia Football is much similar to 1964 with solid players, but collectability tends to stick to ‘football guys’. There are six Hall of Fame rookies, but none appear at quarterback or running back. Only two won Super Bowls as a player, although two also won Super Bowls as assistant coaches. While far from a […]
