SFB-H-1966

14.95

The 1966 NFL and AFL Season Sets.  The Super Bowl era begins even though it was called the AFL-NFL World Championship Game.  The Atlanta Falcons joined the NFL and the Miami Dolphins joined the AFL, necessitating the addition of bye weeks.   The AFL and NFL started merger talks during 1966 setting the stage for the AFL-NFL World Championship Game where the Green Bay Packers easily dominated the Kansas City Chiefs.  The names in this set are legendary.  Bart Starr, Johnny Unitas, Gale Sayers, Sonny Jurgensen, Don Meredith, Leroy Kelly, Ray Nitchske, Dick Butkus Deacon Jones, Len Dawson, Jim Nance and many, many others.  Only the best teams made the post seasons as the Division winners played in the League Championship Game.  The Packers beat the Cowboys in the NFL and the Chiefs beat the Bills.  The legend of Vince Lombardi, Bart Starr, the Packer sweep and a stiff defense grew as they were the class of the NFL.  Hank Stram had Len Dawson to pilot his ship along with a big time offense and a sturdy defense.  The match ups are great and the names are etched in the lore and history of Professional Football.  Relive it all with the 1966 Season Set.
