Description



Advancing to the NFL Championship for the third time in four years, the Washington Redskins were felled by the Chicago Bears in 1941 (though not nearly by the embarrassing 73-0 margin suffered in 1940). Here is a near-complete run (8 of 10) of Redskins programs from that 1943 campaign. Includes:

 

October 10 vs. Brooklyn Dodgers: 40-page guide issued at Griffith Stadium; presents (GD) with both covers detached but present

October 17 at Green Bay Packers: 20-page program issued at Milwaukee’s State Fair Park; presents (VG) with center (roster) page detached but present

October 24 vs. Chicago Cardinals: 40-page publication issued at Griffith Stadium; presents (GD) with covers detached but present (writing on front cover)

October 31 vs. Brooklyn Dodgers: 16-page guide issued at Ebbets Field; presents (EX) with covers/pages completely intact

November 14 vs. Detroit Lions: 40-page program issued at Griffith Stadium; presents (VG-EX) with writing on back cover and minimal paper loss on front cover

November 21 vs. Chicago Bears: 40-page publication issued at Griffith Stadium; presents (EX) with very minor paper loss on front cover and covers/pages completely intact

December 5 at New York Giants: 16-page guide issued at the Polo Grounds; presents (VG-EX) with vertical compacting fold

December 12 vs. New York Giants: issued at Griffith Stadium; presents (PR) with pages 19-22 missing and moisture-induced wrinkling.

 

Missing only are the November 7 (away) and November 28 (home) programs for games against the Philadelphia-Pittsburgh Steelers
