Description



Chronicling the Washington Redskins’ 1942 NFL Championship campaign, these (9) gameday programs hail from the storied franchise’s last title season until the strike-shortened 1982 effort and the team’s last year of double-digit wins before the 1972 installment realized the feat before falling victim to the unbeaten Dolphins.
