1972 Sunoco Stamps
The 1972 Sunoco NFL Stamp set includes 624 stamps that were handed out at gas stations in 9-player booklets. The players are organized in teams in sets of 12 offensive and 12 defensive players. Each stamp, which measures 1 5/8" by 2 3/8", had to be punched out of a perforated sheet and was then intended to be placed in an album. Although popular with us kids, Sunoco never repeated this promotion.
The key rookies included in the 1972 Sunoco Stamp set are: #8 Roger Staubach, #301 Jack Youngblood, #393 Archie Manning, #458 Art Shell, #526 Mel Blount, and #600 Steve Spurrier.
