    Touchdown Illustrated is an American college football magazine by Touchdown Publications, Inc. It was started in 1973 as the official publication of the Pacific 8 Conference and its member universities. In its first year, Touchdown Illustrated simultaneously published nine issues, all edited by Ralph M. Grady and David A. Duncan. No. 1 covered the Pacific 8 Conference in general. The other ones were dedicated to the eight university teams.

    For the covers and the headlines, each issue uses a different display typeface or two. Most of the featured faces had been released in the years before. All of them were included in Letraset’s range of typefaces for dry transfer lettering.
