Year: 1967

Set: Philadelphia (Rate)

Card: #106 Fran Tarkenton


“ TIL - today I learned - that Fran Tarkenton did not spend his whole career with the Vikings. I saw this card, and said to myself: Fran on Philadelphia? so I looked it up, and there were 4 mid career years with the Giants. Then I looked closer, and saw that Philadelphia is the set name. Weird ” -abide   3
“ What is Philadelphia ” -mkb   2
“ One of the few years I collected football cards: Memories, pressed between the pages of my mind Memories, sweetened through the ages just like wine ” -jayoneill   4
“ I didn't know that "Rub Coin Over Clear Area Below Cartoon And Answer Will Appear" held their longest TD pass record. That guy must have had a long career because he's on the back of so many cards! ” -DanD   3
“ Nice card. In fact That's (an) Incredible Card. ” -captkirk42   1
“ Nice. Pretty cool looking vintage football card. ” -Derek McDonough   1
“ Philadelphia did issue four good football sets this being one of them. The back stats not only, but also the date when Tarkenton was traded to the Giants. ” -Brendan Barrick   1
“ Good looking vintage card. ” -parsley24   1
“ Very cool card! As for the trivia question, it is currently Gus Frerotte, with a 99-yard pass to Bernard Berrian in 2008. ” -curling2019   1

 The Philadelphia cards throw off some people unfamiliar with the 60s.     I have them on ebay and always laugh when I list a Cowboys card  as  "1966 Philadelphia Cowboys.....".

He was the one I always looked forward to watching every Sunday. He was an amazing scrambling quaterback before it was commonplace.
