1961 Topps CFL Card Error

Post by GreenRider6689 » Sat Jan 05, 2008 2:50 pm

After years of having this card in my collection I recently noticed that the team photo used for the '61 Roughriders card was really a Cleveland Browns photo from about 1960! Topps also cut and pasted this photo for their 1963 & 1964 CFL sets, passing it off as the Saskatchewan RR team card. No sign Stout Steve Owen anywhere, but I can make out Paul Brown & Jim Brown just to name two Cleveland Browns from the era...

You're right. It can't be Saskatchewan. It looks like they're standing in front of a hill...
