Description



This was the high-water mark for the Steam Roller franchise, as Jimmy Conzelman, Wildcat Wilson and company lost just one game en route to the 1928 NFL title. Interestingly, Providence holds the distinction of being the last now-defunct NFL team to win a championship. On November 25th, they flattened the Giants 16-0, despite the efforts of future G-Men Hall of Famers Steve Owen and Cal Hubbard. This 6-1/4" x 9-1/4" program rates FR/GD and features the team fight song on the back cover: "Steam Roller...Roll, Roll, Roll / Across their...Goal, Goal, Goal / For while the band is playin', Stands are swayin', / Fans are sayin', 'Roll, Steam Roller.'"
