I was 9, in 4th grade and my friends brought to school some football cards. They were cool and so the next day I took a few nickels from my piggy bank and went to the White Hen Pantry, a corner convenience store and bought 5 packs of1972 Topps Football. I was hooked and from that moment on I have been a collector. My first pack included Roger Staubach. I still have those cards today and have enjoyed the process of accumulating a few more.

This set contains vertical and horizontal pictures.
Key rookies include Staubach, Plunkett, Manning, Joiner and Riggins.
The short-printed third series cards demand a premium and are harder to find.
