1981 Fleer NFL Football Stickers - Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns

For the 3rd installment of the review of the multitude of sticker variations in the 1981 Fleer Team Action NFL Football Stickers, we've got the Bengals and Browns:

Cincinnati Bengals:

Both the helmet and the logo stickers both have the same variations with either white or black facemasks and different shades of orange:

Cleveland Browns:

Just like with the Bengals, the Browns logo sticker is just a smaller version of the helmet. For the Browns, the variation is the color of the helmet. The stickers on the left have orange helmets while the stickers on the right are much closer to red.

The scanner didn't capture the color difference as well as I hoped, especially for the larger helmet stickers. If you are holding both stickers in your hand, the difference is much more evident that what this picture is showing. The difference shows up a bit better on the small helmet stickers in the picture.
