Description



Seeking the franchise’s third championship berth in four years, the 1939 Washington Redskins were felled by the New York Giants, 9-7 on the final day of the regular season and missed a title tilt date with Green Bay. This near-complete run of (10/11) gameday programs were issued for that year’s ‘Skins games. Includes:

 

September 17 vs. Philadelphia Eagles: issued at Philadelphia Municipal Stadium (the Eagles moved to Shibe Park the following season), the 24-page guide presents (VG-EX) with covers/pages intact; there is minor spine separation and penciled notations on the center (scorecard/roster) pages.

October 1 vs. New York Giants: issued at Griffith Stadium, the 20-page publication presents (VG) with covers/pages intact; there is minor paper loss on front cover and vertical creases.

October 8 vs. Brooklyn Dodgers: issued at Griffith Stadium, the 20-page program presents (VG-EX) with covers/pages intact; there is minor cover wear and a penciled notation on the front cover.

October 22 vs. Pittsburgh Pirates: issued at Forbes Field during Pittsburgh’s final season before adopting the “Steelers” name, the 20-page guide presents (EX) with covers and crisp pages intact; there are handwritten date notations on the front and inside front cover.

October 29 vs. Green Bay Packers: issued at Milwaukee’s State Fair Park, the 16-page publication presents (VG) with covers/pages intact; there is a vertical compacting fold.

November 5 vs. Philadelphia Eagles: issued at Griffith Stadium, the 20-page guide presents (FR) with (2) man-made holes to facilitate previous binder storage; while covers pages are complete, there is spine separation and creases throughout.

November 12 vs. Brooklyn Dodgers: issued at Ebbets Field, the eight-page publication presents (EX) with covers/pages intact. The 42-0 Redskins triumph that day represented the club’s most lopsided margin of victory to that point in franchise annals (it was surpassed during the 1945 season).

November 19 vs. Chicago Cardinals: issued at Griffith Stadium, the 20-page program presents (VG-EX) with covers/pages intact.

November 26 vs. Detroit Lions: issued at Griffith Stadium, the 20-page guide presents (GD) with pages intact; covers are present but have creases, significant wear and are almost entirely separated.

December 3 vs. New York Giants: issued at the Polo Grounds, the eight-page publication presents (VG-EX) with covers/pages intact and a vertical fold.

 

Missing only is the October 15 program from the home game (Griffith Stadium) against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
