Description

With a heavy slate of early road games and limited revenue working against them, the Miami Seahawks were unable to sustain a presence as the city’s first major professional sports franchise. Issued during the club’s lone season in 1946, these (7) gameday programs are among the most scarce gridiron publications in the hobby. Issued at the ill-fated franchise’s Orange Bowl home (with road publications from Kezar Stadium and the L.A. Coliseum), the guides present nicely with covers/pages intact throughout. Complete listing on our website.

August 30 vs. Buffalo Bills issued at Baltimore’s Municipal Stadium (later re-named “Memorial Stadium”), this 20-page pre-season publication presents minimally at the (VG-EX) plateau and includes a roster change insert.

September 15 vs. San Francisco 49ers issued at Kezar Stadium, the 24-page guide presents nicely, though is technically (VG) with a handwritten score notation on the front cover.

September 20 vs. Los Angeles Dons issued at the Los Angeles Coliseum, this 20-page program presents between (VG) and (GD) with spine wear/separation and a vertical compacting fold.

October 7 vs. San Francisco 49ers issued at the Orange Bowl for the lone home game during the first eight weeks of the season, this 52-page publication presents (VG) with handwritten notations on a player profile page, as well as front cover wear and moisture-induced wrinkling/discoloration.

November 11 vs. Chicago Rockets issued at the Orange Bowl, this 44-page guide shows (VG) quality with cover/spine wear secured by vintage transparent tape strips. (A second program form the same game presents (FR) with missing front cover and detached back cover.)

December 13 vs. New York Yankees issued at the Orange Bowl, this 36-page program shows (EX) quality with crisp covers and pages intact.
