The Oakland Raiders had a spectacular year in 1967, won the AFL Championship and played against the Packers in Superbowl II. In a pre-season trade, the Raiders acquired Daryle Lamonica from the Bills, along with end Bill Miller. Willie Brown arrived from Denver and old pro George Blanda was signed after his release from Houston. Blanda backed up new starting quarterback Lamonica and led the league in scoring as placekicker. Duane Benson and guard Gene Upshaw were top rookies who made an immediate impact. Going into the Super Bowl, the Raiders had only lost once all year, a 13-point loss to the Jets at Shea Stadium.
In this rare 28-minute film (it’s the only copy known to exist), you’ll see great AFL action from most Raider home games at the Oakland Coliseum, plus scenes from road games at old War Memorial Stadium, new San Diego Stadium, Rice Stadium in Houston and old Municipal Stadium in Kansas City! Also included is the AFL Championship Game in Oakland vs. Houston, and highlights from Superbowl II against the Packers. Narrated by long-time voice of the Raiders Bill King, this beautiful COLOR film brings back great memories of the Raiders first AFL Championship! Beside those players already mentioned above, you’ll see many other Raiders of the day: Pete Banaszak, Clem Daniels, Larry Todd, Hewritt Dixon, Roger Hagberg, Gus and Jim Otto, Harry Schuh, Bob Svihus, Jim Harvey, Wayne Hawkins, Bob Kruse, Ben Davidson, Ike Lassiter, Carleton Oats, Dan Birdwell, Bill Budness, Dan Conners, Bill Fairband, Bill Laskey, J.R. Williamson, Rodger Bird, Dave Grayson, Kent McCloughan, Warren Powers, Howie Williams, Ken Herock, Dave Kocourek, Warren Wells, Mike Eischeid, Billy Cannon and young Fred Biletnikoff.
