1966 Coke NFL Eagles Promotion Poster

Saw this poster yesterday at an antiques shop. Its a poster for the promotion Coke did with the NFL back in 1966.

One of the prizes from the promotion was a team poster with Dave Boss artwork, which is shown on this poster.   In return for collecting a full set of bottle caps, you could earn a couple of different prizes.  Here is a look at the Coke Saver Sheet for the Chicago Bears:

Here is a closer look at the prizes:

And here are the details on claiming your prize:

Interesting that you could hand draw substitutes for the caps you couldn't find with the help of a sheet from your local Coca-Cola Bottler, and also interesting that you could redeem the prize at Sears.  

Just as they did with Major League Baseball, there were a few other promotions that Coke did with the NFL for other sets of prizes that I will cover in future posts.
