Description



Football fanatics clear some major space for this titanic AAFC banner. The AAFC pro football league fielded teams for four years, from 1946-1949. The Cleveland Browns ruled this short-lived league with total domination, winning championships all four seasons. This tremendous success earned the Browns a spot in the NFL starting in 1950 and they immediately set the senior league on its ear, winning six conference championships and three NFL championships between 1950-1955.

 

From Cleveland's Municipal Stadium comes this "1949 AAFC" championship banner. This expansive stadium hung banner is in a league of its own. Showing light to moderate signs of wear, this heavyweight herald reaches 3' in height and spans approximately 18' in width, displaying handsomely with minor signs of wear. Spread across the top in orange lettering against a brown field is the title "All American Football Conference" and below is a Browns orange helmet logo centered in the middle of the legend "Champion 1949" in white lettering. An absolute must for dedicated sports historians, this genuine stadium hung piece of pro football history makes a dynamic presentation, while recalling one of the most dominant teams of all-time.
