Description

In a brave new world, maverick executives challenged the established NFL in an upstart league with visible scoreboard clocks, television contracts, names on jerseys and a 14-game schedule among the differences introduced (and all subsequently adopted by the NFL). Following suit with these daring changes, San Diego’s Balboa Stadium more than doubled its capacity in anticipation of fruitful days. Well, the overall investment paid off, as the Chargers christened their new home with an AFL title game appearance on Christmas Eve, 1961. Issued at that battle against the defending champion Houston Oilers, this program is arguably the most stunning AFL championship souvenir you’ll ever see! The 44-page guide details the combatants in images and text. Crisp covers/pages are completely intact on this (MT) condition relic.
