In today's world, fantasy football is a common activity for the modern football fan. Watching the game has changed forever due to the rise of fantasy football and how many people are involved. It has taken watching sports to a completely new level of enjoyment for many fans.
In 1967, we didn't have the modern fantasy football movement, but we did have this classic image. Taken from a Sports Illustrated issue from 1967, this ad features a pick'em contest put on by the people at Head and Shoulders. $100 for anyone who can pick the winner of the 12 games listed on the entry form.
This ad is loaded with absolutely outstanding imagery. The sports fan of 1967 definitely did not have the luxury of high definition television, a futuristically designed entertainment center or an internet feed to provide statistics. The image of the turn-knob picture tube on a stand and the TV tray is priceless. Look closely at the TV tray and you will see the fan's sub sandwich, milk, newspaper, pipe and radio. A classic image of the cutting edge sports fan and his arsenal of tools from 1967.
