1986 Topps Football Wax Box Team Cards

Topps issued 4 different Football wax boxes in 1986 with cards printed on the boxes. Unlike the 1985 Football boxes which featured 4 different player cards on the bottom of each box, the 1986 boxes had 1 team card printed on the back of the box. Here are the 4 team cards:

The 4 teams that make up the set are the Super Bowl XX champion 1985 Chicago Bears, their opponent the New England Patriots, and the teams that made it as far as the NFC and AFC Championship games - the Los Angeles Rams and the Miami Dolphins.

The back of the cards list the players pictured in the team photo:

Interestingly, the cards are not numbered.

When compared to the team photo's which include the coaches and owners, these are the same photo's. Topps air-brushed all of the coaches and owners out of the photos.
