1948 Chicago Cardinals at New York Giants Program.
Lot 397. 1948 Chicago Cardinals at New York Giants Program. In an effort to repeat as NFL champions, the Cardinals racked up 11 victories in 1948, including a resounding 63-35 triumph over the Giants on Oct. 17 at the Polo Grounds. The program’s owner neatly wrote the score on the cover and added this commentary: “Conerly, Swiacki and Roberts were good – the rest of the Giants awful. Harder kicked 9 points after touchdown for a new record.” Except for the commentary, the 20-page program is ex and presents photos of these Giants: Jack, Tim and Wellington Mara, the team’s owners; Steve Owen, the coach; and nine rookies, including Em Tunnell, Joe Scott, Skip Minsi and Bill Swiacki. Winning Bid $30.
