    The 1970 NFL season witnessed one very important event in the history of the game. It marked the fifty-first year for the NFL but was the first season played after the AFL and NFL merger. Divisional alignments allowed most long-running rivalries to continue. It was also agreed the 26-team league would have an eight-team playoff schedule with four teams from each conference. Agreed upon expansion teams did not start until the 1976 season. It was a year quarterback legends like Bart Starr and John Unitas where in the twilight of their careers while a rookie running back who won the Heisman Trophy out of USC named Orenthal James Simpson would become famous on the field and in the movies and infamous off the field and in the real world.

    Presented is one of the finest 265-card 1970 Topps football master sets in PSA holders. The set is one card away from 100% MINT+ status and it is a color variation at that.
