I just picked up a type example of the team cards and hope to nail a patch shortly. My understanding is these were marketed together with the patches being an insert, possibly in the Wash DC area. What I cannot ascertain is what type of wrapper these were sold in. Has anyone ever seen one? And why no Pats card?

my understanding is that the patches were the main product and the cards were used because the patches, by themselves, in packages would be too floppy. in short, i believe the cards were an afterthought.

dc area is what i have heard too. i've never seen a wrapper either, not that i have looked for one.

Nice! Box scan would rock too. That must be a rare pack, geez..... Interesting the Pats logo is on the wrapper but no Team Card. I am having an issue with it being a test pack though-looks like regular production.

John:

Man, you got some nice scans! Looks like a two-color box proof. Crazy!

Thanks. I usually save photos of the rare Topps stuff since I would never be able to afford it, LOL

You are mistaken, there is a Pats team card & patch. I have both for sale if you are interested.

I am not buying but would like to see a scan of the Pats Team Card. Something is amiss with the checklist if it exists. Thanks!
