What Was I Thinking?:
Maybe I just wish there were more cards of guys wearing glasses?
In all seriousness, this is a nice group of cards for $3 shipped.  Men who played on a single team for their entire careers get a little extra rub in this hobby, and to have two all-timers on one card is outstanding.  I probably have the Score card in a pile somewhere, I know I certainly remember having it back when the set came out.  When these two quarterbacks went head-to-head in Super Bowl VI, Staubach came out on top, 24-3.  The next year, Griese helped the Dolphins to their famed undefeated season, beating Washington in SB VII.  They repeated against the Vikings the next season, and a few years later Staubach would win his second Super Bowl (XII) against the Denver Broncos.  Two cool cards from a cool set.
