1991 Pro Set World League Of American Football

Now I will admit to ridiculing Pro Set cards on a regular basis. I advocate everyone shredding or burning their doubles of any 1990-91 Pro Set cards to help reduce the number in existence and I hold them up as the biggest example of a poorly planned junk wax set with multiple errors along with cards we didn’t need (A hockey puck? Umpires and referees?).

Pro-set Football would be at the bottom of my want list and near the bottom of any sport cards I’d actively look for. I’ve been unfortunate enough to get a few in some lots I have bought, luckily they did not have much reach in Canada and are fairly obscure.

Having said all that. I love the 1991 Pro Set World League Of American Football inserts. They are just so 1991. There’s no way to explain it.

Any league that has the acronym W-LAF is bound to interest me. The fact that there were 2 different inserts, one for helmets and one for players, makes it cool. The fact that almost everything about the league is forgotten by now makes them something I think I’ll keep around and keep an eye out for.

Now if you like Pro Set (or Football) then I’d be happy to send any of these to you. Or if you have any of the WLAF inserts please let me know.

Here is the total extent of Football cards I have. Pitiful, but not unexpected as I focus on hockey.
