Tang's 1962 Set of NFL Team Photos

By John Turney

In 1962 Tang, the drink the Astronauts took to the Moon sponsored a give-away that allowed fans to collect all 14 of the NFL team photos, complete with team logo in lower right-hand corner.

If you are a fan of the great defensive linemen of that era, it's a feat for the eyes. Deacon Jones and Merlin Olsen, Doug Atkins, Paul Wiggin, Bill Glass, Leo Nomellini, Willie Davis, Henry Jordan, Gino Marchetti, Bob Lilly, Jim Katcavage, Andy Robustelli, Alex Karras, Roger Brown, Jim Marshall are all featured. What a great era for rushers it was.
