George Allen Autographed Book, “The Future is Now” - Scarce Autograph.

Lot 4. George Allen Autographed Book, “The Future is Now” - Scarce Autograph. The Hall of Fame NFL coach signed the flyleaf boldly in black ink. His large gem mint 10 signature, personalized “To Dale,” is preceded by “good luck” and followed by the date he signed, “Sept. 3rd 1977.” William Gildea and Kenneth Turan wrote the 318-page 1972 book, which they subtitled “George Allen: Football’s Most Controversial Coach.” Published by Houghton Mifflin, the book is ex+ with a vg dust jacket. Allen coached in the NFL from 1957 to 1977. He served as head coach of the Los Angeles Rams from 1966-70 and of the Washington Redskins from 1971-77. Typically, his teams finished first or second in their conference or division. They never had a losing season. His 1972 Redskins reached Super Bowl VII but lost to the Miami Dolphins, 14-7. At his retirement, his NFL winning percentage of .681 was exceeded only by Vince Lombardi’s .736 and John Madden’s .731. Allen died in 1990 at the age of 72. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2002. Kevin Keating authenticated Allen’s autograph, which is scarce. Winning Bid $92.
