Description

Replacing a bankrupt Miami Seahawks franchise in the upstart AAFC (All America Football Conference), Baltimore fielded the first of three separate Colts installments from 1947 through 1949. These (9) game-issued programs hail from the 1948 season during which the 7-7 team made its first and only AAFC playoff appearance. With covers/pages intact, the guides present between (EX) and (VG) from their Memorial Stadium home and venues such as Ebbets Field, Soldier Field, Kezar Stadium and the Los Angeles Coliseum. Complete listing on our website.
