Fleer NFL Football Cloth Patch Stickers - San Diego Chargers

The San Diego Chargers have 4 different Fleer cloth patch helmet variations and 1 Hi-Gloss helmet sticker. The single bar facemask variation with the 60's - early 70's white helmet was produced in 1972 & 1973 and is shown on the top. The helmet changed to dark blue with a double bar facemask in 1974 on the bottom left, and the 1975 version with the TM is on the bottom right:
