Conflicted when trying to rate this set. Some of the coolest action cards of all time. Specifically, some of the sideline photos like Franco Harris, Mercury Morris, Joe Namath, Carl Garrett, Leroy Kelly, etc. But a lot of the set is boring and the color choices are pretty ugly. The backs are okay but I never like just last year's statistics and lifetime. I guess I kind of view this set about the same way I do the 1973 baseball set. Alright, but a letdown after the three previous sets.

I like this set of cards more than most years. Lots of good players and this was when football was a hard game played by real players. Money and endorsements weren't the play of the day. I particularly like the Oakland Raiders cards...it looks as though the players were photographed at a high school football field. The 70's card sets were made for team and individual player collecting, so complete sets weren't all that important to most kids.
