1970 Big Red another season not reaching the post season-their record was 8-5-1. This team had no rookies of note.
The reverse was in an attractive horizontal layout with a pinkish/orange color and three purple boxes with card number, mini-player bio, and cartoon about the player. This issue contained 10 Cardinals plus inserts. This issue contained rookie cards of Rolf Krueger (DT/DE), and Chuck Walker (DE).
Series 1 packs contained a poster (Larry Wilson) as an insert. Series 2 packs included the highly collected Super Glossy (Jackie Smith) inserts. While the posters are blah the Super Glossy cards are very nice. The fronts were very colorful in late ‘60s trippy colors, a large player picture, with name, team, and position on front.
Topps also issued a separate Super set that were very much like their baseball Supers. Nice full bleed photography, player photo and facsimile auto.
Nineteen-seventy was a good year for oddballs-for 1970 brought us the first Kellogg’s cards-Larry Wilson and Johnny Roland represented the Big Red.
Not sure how these were issued but Chiquita issued football Team Logo Stickers in 1970-yeah I guess not technically a card.
Score card- 9 of 10 Topps Cardinals, 0 inserts or Topps Super, 1 of 2 Kellogs, and no Chiquita.
