Description



On the heels of a 73-0 championship drubbing at the hands of the Chicago Bears, the Washington Redskins came out firing in 1941, only to endure a late-season four game losing streak that dashed any championship hopes. This near-set of (9/11) gameday programs were issued during that roller coaster season. Includes:

 

September 28 vs. New York Giants: issued at Griffith Stadium, the 52-page guide presents (EX) with covers/pages intact and a handwritten date on the front cover. There are no creases and the front cover showcases a Sammy Baugh autograph (“9-10” strength).

October 5 vs. Brooklyn Dodgers: issued at Griffith Stadium, the 52-page publication presents (FR) with covers/pages intact, but has man-made holes near the spine to facilitate previous binder storage.

October 12 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers: issued at Forbes Field, the 24-page guide presents (EX) with covers/pages completely intact.

October 19 vs. Philadelphia Eagles: issued at Shibe Park, the 24-page program presents (EX) with covers/pages intact.

October 26 vs. Cleveland Rams: issued at Griffith Stadium, the 52-page publication presents (FR) with covers/pages intact, but has man-made holes near the spine to facilitate previous binder storage.

November 2 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers: issued at Griffith Stadium, the 52-page guide presents (VG-EX) with covers/pages intact and no folds/creases. Following this game, a 23-3 romp of the Steelers, Washington stood all alone atop the NFL East, only to have a four-game skid ensue.

November 16 vs. Chicago Bears: issued at Wrigley Field for a re-match against the defending champion Bears, the 28-page guide presents (VG) with minor cover wear; covers and pages remain completely intact.

November 23 vs. New York Giants: issued at the Polo Grounds, the 12-page publication presents (EX) with thick-stock covers/pages intact.

November 30 vs. Green Bay Packers: issued at Griffith Stadium, the 52-page program presents (VG) with covers/pages intact. Has minor cover wear, but no folds or creases.

 

Missing only are: November 9 (vs. Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field) and December 7 (vs. Philadelphia Eagles at Griffith Stadium). Due to time and cost restraints, there is no third-party authentication for the Sammy Baugh autograph, which is presumed legitimate.
