Washington DC's famous "Touchdown Club" returns to the limelight with this 1977 Touchdown autographed partial set of (30/50). Admittedly these 2-1/8 x 3-1/8" oddball issue cards are not rare, however they are kind of tough to find in groups as large as this one. Typically they are offered on an individual with an autograph on the front, as they were produced with the intention of mailing off for autograph requests. Worth noting, is that all but one of the signers represented in the group offered here is deceased, with most having passed on way back in the 20th Century. Showing minimal to minor corner wear as expected of cards that have been mailed, handled and cherished, this group shows average (VG-EX to EX-MT) condition with (1) lesser, while the autographs are very pleasing, showing average ("8-9") strength. Auction LOA from JSA.

Highlights are HOFers: Tony Canadeo, George Connor, Benny Friedman, Clarke Hinkle, Mike Michalske, George Musso, "Ace" Parker, Charley Trippi (still alive and less than two years from his 100th birthday), "Bulldog" Turner, Bill Willis, Alex Wojciehowicz

Also present are: "Hunk" Anderson, Ernie Caddel, Ed Danowski, Gary Famiglietti, Beattie Feathers, Aldo Forte, Pat Harder, Jim Lee Howell, Cecil Isbell, Joe Muha, Armand Niccolai, Bill Osmanski, Buddy Parker, Hampton Pool, Barney Poole, Jim Poole, Buford Ray, George Sauer, Hank Soar
