On January 10, 1965, the black players of the AFL All-Star teams boycotted the game in New Orleans because of the racial discrimination that they faced while in town.  The game was subsequently moved to Houston.  There were long-term ramifications of the boycott, some positive and some negative.  Regardless, those men should be remembered for their bravery and willingness to stand up for what was right.

I have attempted to collect 1965 Topps cards of the men, both white and black, who were members of those All-Star teams.  When possible, I have asked that they inscribe a particular message about the boycott on the cards.  The following cards make up the small, but growing collection.
