The 1962 Green Bay Packers team was arguably the greatest team of the Lombardi era... on second thought, there wouldn't be much argument - they were the best! They power swept their way to a 13–1 record and beat the New York Giants 16–7 in the Championship. It is the pleasure of RetroCards to make a very special 1962 Topps supplemental set of Packers cards. This set reflects the accomplishments of the 1961 team (also a Championship year for the Pack). No team has more Hall Of Fame players than the Lombardi-era Packers and since the football sets were rather small in the 1960s, several key players didn't have cards. Hall of Famers Willie Davis, Ray Nitschke, Willie Wood, Herb Adderley, and Emlen Tunnell now have cards and other Pro Bowlers Jerry Kramer, Ron Kramer, Jess Whittington, and legendary coach Vince Lombardi are now properly represented.
This set is considered one of the finest sets of the 60's with it's sharp black border, color posed shot, and black-and-white action photo. It is the reason RetroCards took the time to make this a very special set for collectors. This is the first of several vintage Packers sets where the card company missed several key players that collectors just can't do without!
