FANTASY FOOTBALL

HERE ARE EIGHT (OKAY, NINE) VINTAGE FOOTBALL CARDS THAT SHOULD BE ON YOUR LOTTERY-WINNING DREAM LIST

Football collectors are at a disadvantage when it comes to vintage material. Baseball has a rich and full timeline of cards one can collect. Football does not have quite the cardboard history.

The cards we have selected are not necessarily the rarest or most expensive cards, but several are. While these cards may only be on a dream list to most of us, there are some bargain options when it comes to collecting these cards and the sets they were issued in.

In no particular order, here are the eight cards you need in your vintage football card collection after you win the lottery.
