Interesting item; poster issued circa 1969 by Coleco (company that produced sport themed games and later video games) showing 42 numbered NFL players. Theses images are usually found cut to approximately 2 1/8" by 3 1/4" and are attributed to Champion Corn Flakes. There is a high level of redundancy between the Champion Corn Flakes list and the players that appear on this poster (and the numbering beneath the images is the same); however there is a new addition (2A36 O. J. Simpson). The following are players that appear on the poster and in the Corn Flakes checklist (41 of 42): 1A35 Jim Nance, 1N60 Tommy Nobis, 2A15 Jack Kemp, 2N41 Tom Matte, 2N88 John Mackey, 3N40 Gale Sayers, 3N51 Dick Butkus, 4N44 Leroy Kelly, 5A90 George Webster, 5N30 Dan Reeves, 5N74 Bob Lilly, 6A16 Len Dawson, 6A21 Mike Garrett, 6N20 Lem Barney, 6N24 Mel Farr, 7A12 Bob Griese, 7A39 Larry Csonka, 7N15 Bart Starr, 7N33 Jim Grabowski, 7N66 Ray Nitschke, 8A12 Joe Namath, 8A13 Don Maynard, 8A83 George Sauer, 8N18 Roman Gabriel, 8N75 Deacon Jones, 9A3 Daryl Lamonica, 9A40 Pete Banazak, 9N30 Bill Brown, 9N84 Gene Washington, 10A19 Lance Alworth, 10A21 John Hadl, 10N17 Billy Kilmer, 12N16 Norm Snead, 12N18 Ben Hawkins, 13N10 Kent Nix, 13N34 Andy Russell, 13N47 Marv Woodson, 14N25 Jim Bakken, 15N12 John Brodie, 16N9 Sonny Jurgensen, 16N42 Charley Taylor. Of note is that Simpson appears in his rookie preseason jersey (#36). The 14" by 27" poster is heavily creased and has numerous tape repairs on the blank reverse. This piece both clarifies and confuses the origin for these images...the existence of Champion Corn Flakes has been questioned but some of the checklisted cards that are missing from this poster beckons further investigation.
