Delve deep into Washington Redskins history with this collection of (21) vintage tickets/stubs. These gameday souvenirs date from the period 1932-1956, spanning the franchise's first two and a half decades of NFL play. Beginning with a couple of examples from the team's inception as the Boston Braves/Redskins from 1932-1936, these ancient relics have strong emphasis on the Sammy Baugh era of 1937-1952 and conclude with a 1956 example from a game vs Colts rookie QB Johnny Unitas. Through the course, the games represented are marked by venerable stadiums, noteworthy opponents and prolific achievements, including a 6-touchdown game by legendary QB "Slingin' Sammy" Baugh.
