Description



Every Redskins fan gets fire in their eyes during Dallas week.  You can't get two teams to hate each other more than in this rivalry.  There was a new team in 1960, the Dallas Cowboys, and the Redskins gained their only victory that year thanks to the Cowboys.  While the Cowboys won none that year.  Thus began the rivalry that Tom Landry said "you never know when you're going to surrounded by a bunch of Redskins".

 

Famous chiefs are present on the covers of these programs including Sitting Bull of the Sioux tribe, Cochise of the Apache tribe and Adoette of the Kiowa tribe. The trio of Redskins publications present in average (VG-EX) condition with:
