Description



Dayton got its gridiron start in the 1910s and was named after its Triangle Park home field. But an over-reliance on local players led to disappointing results and a lack of fans to fill the stadium, so the Triangles became a "traveling team" that usually played on the road. On October 14, 1928, they suffered a 28-0 bruising in Providence. This was the high-water mark for the Steam Roller franchise, as Jimmy Conzelman and company lost just one game en route to the NFL title. Interestingly, Providence holds the distinction of being the last now-defunct NFL team to win a championship. The program measures 6-1/4" x 9-1/2" and displays VG-EX condition.
