Looking around the internet I found that the wrappers featured the Eagles, Jets, Dolphins, and Cowboys.
Nine stamps per packet. 624 stamps total. Here's what they look like...
But how did they advertise in the newspapers? Don Shula says:
|Springfield Union - September 17, 1972|
|Greensboro Daily News - October 1, 1972|
|Plain Dealer - December 20, 1972|
|Plain Dealer - January 8, 1973|
Maybe their graphic artists got tired.
|Springfield Union - January 11, 1973|
Action News 6 - On Your Side...
|Trenton Evening Times - February 26, 1973|
I don't remember these as a youth. It would have been in my early collecting period. I'll have to ask my folks. Anyone else remember collecting these when they originally came out?
