Description




Football historians note the playing of the fourth game in the history of the Washington Redskins franchise with this 1932 football program. The Redskins began NFL play in 1932 as the "Boston Braves", playing their home games at Braves Field as a tenant of the Boston National League baseball team. In 1933 ownership conducted a re-branding of the team as the "Boston Redskins", coinciding with a move to Fenway Park. Fan appreciation and attendance in Boston didn't amount to much, so after five seasons the Redskins franchise relocated south to Washington, DC in 1937. This fortuitous move sees the franchise currently ranked as the fourth most valuable in the NFL, thanks to a rabid fan base.


Offered is a 10/23/32 New York Football Giants vs Boston Braves program from the Polo Grounds. Decorated with a front cover photo of Giants running back Dale "Hap" Moran, this rare and historic NFL game souvenir suits up in (GD-VG) condition and would rate higher if not for the presence of an original period vertical compacting at center. The cover and pages are clean and bright, with decent gloss and bold text/graphics and the spine is tight with just minor hints of oxidation on the staples. Listed among the game's participants are legends Ray Flaherty, Mel Hein, Red Badgro and Cliff Battles.
