Extremely rare card from the 1969 Eskimo Pie set of AFL stars. Issued just before the NFL-AFL merger was announced, this football card set concentrated on the junior league AFL and were distributed on boxes of Eskimo Pies. Similar to the Post Cereal cards issued on boxes, these Eskimo Pie cards were issued on 16 two-card panels with players separated by a dotted line, plus a small ad below. Although the ad states there were 32 cards, only 15 actual panels have surfaced, and the set is assumed to be complete at 15 panels with several considered Single-Printed panels.
Offered here is the scarce card of Bob Griese, an early card of thiis HOF signal caller, who is joined with Oakland Raiders star Ben Davidson. The 1969 Eskimo Pie cards are among the most rare of all football cards and are in high demand, with this card the most desirable within the set. Very good condition with a minor miscut along bottom edge.
