Here’s Some Neat Late ’60s NFL and AFL Pins

Auction Finds, Football Friday, Sports
Based on a number of things I see in this photo of classic AFL/NFL pins, I'm guessing these were produced between 1968 and 1971. The reason I'm guessing '68 at the earliest is that we have a Cincinnati Bengals pin, and they didn't start play in the AFL until that year. Likewise, the Boston Patriots changed their name to New England Patriots in the spring of 1971, so it seems unlikely that these were produced after then. Elsewhere, we've got some sweet old logos for the 49ers, Rams, Oilers, Cardinals, and Packers.
