In an unusual coincidence, three old Steagles game programs are currently listed on eBay: Steagles vs. Giants, Steagles vs. Bears, and Steagles vs. Packers. (The seller of the last program erroneously places the game at Franklin Field; it was actually played at Shibe Park.)
As I discuss in my book, World War II-era NFL programs are relatively rare. Since paper was in short supply, few were printed in the first place. And of those that were, many were recycled. Anyway, I think these programs are pretty neat, but far too rich for my blood!
(For what it’s worth, two copies of my book are also listed on eBay right now, and for considerably less than the Steagles programs.)
