Seeking to gain national recognition, the top NFL football teams took off for the far reaches of the country in the 1930s to participate in off-season exhibition matches. Often their opponents were hand-picked squads of "All-Americans" and "All-Stars" drawn from both the pro and college ranks. On some occasions two NFL teams would meet at a prominent location to square off in front of fans who wouldn't ordinarily get to see NFL teams in action. These glorified barnstorming games are remembered with this lot of (12) 1934-1939 "special event" game programs. Featured are:
