The other day I was going through my folders of scanned images, looking for something for a future post and I ran across my scans of the “scratch off” game inserts from 1975 Topps football… and I said “I didn’t write about that already? Huh…”
So, as you might have guessed, 1975 Topps Football came with a scratch off game inserted into packs. Since I busted the proverbial crap-ton of 1975 Football wax, I went through a lot of these scratch off games… and over the past few years, I realized I still had some of them. Even better, I have them in unscratched and scratched condition, so that’s what I’m going to show you today.
Here’s what the card looks like out of the pack.
The rules on the back say that you play against another kid, each of you with a card. I can’t remember ever doing that, that was more trouble than it was worth. I think I may have played it myself, when I did play it. Each box is supposed to be a down, more or less. Well, you can just look at the back of the card for the rules, if you’re interested.
The actual scratched-card doesn’t show up well in a scan, as the print underneath is very light… so I played with the brightness and contrast in the image to punch it up a bit.
Anyway, I don’t really have a whole lot to say about this, I just figured you might find this interesting.
