Madden 09 Cards Question re:Historic Teams?

I have pretty much all the madden cards and i am confused about the historic teams. So I have the cards that unlock the nfc and afc hall of fame teams and it works perfect. you can play these teams and it has all these amazing players like Dan Fouts, Jim Thorpe etc.

However the historic teams have just # 31, # 29 etc with no name. Even the ones that I have cards for that say “owning this card unlocks the 93 Bills” etc.? Is there something else I need to do to be able to play those teams with the actual players?

My guess would be they don’t the rights to use their names, so they just use #s.

Unless, I’m misreading your question.

Having the card or not having the card doesn’t make a difference except for the Hall of fame teams. For example if you do not have the card that unlockes the 92 cowboys you can still play the team but the names are not there. So last night I got the card but played them and it is just the same guys with numbers, no change at all? With the hall of fame teams you cant play them at all unless you have the cards.

Somewhat…This is all due to the fact that without those names the NFL does not have to pay royalty rights to those players that are not named. This was one of the major outcrys from retired players that have played on those teams.

The stats are the same i.e. height weight age etc. but the only thing that shows up is a number with no name, and usually the number is different from the actual player they are trying to replicate.

They only pay out to those players that show up on the actual cards, therefore they do not have to pay the sexond string right guard from the 84 Bear team because his name is not on the fake person.

Been playing around with it and I get exactly what your saying now! Thanks for the message!! I was hoping there was an easy way to get those names, since the HOF guys were in there. It’s probably easier for EA sports to strike a deal with the HOF members then all those Ex players. Since as you said, the attributes of the players are there, the only way is to change the name and number of the players and export it. Would take some time but it is possible. A roster of past teams shouldn’t be to hard to come by. Thnks again for those who responded.

It took me a while to find these but i am sure someone on T-Nation will be happy.

These are for both ps2 and xbox

Finding Historice rosters is easy here (http://www.jt-sw.com/football/pro/rosters.nsf) However, it doesn’t show players numbers. I did however find this great site that has all the Past Super Bowls. Any of those teams can be built with that info provided below:
