Washington Redskins Book - Gift Details
Relive the Redskins’ most memorable moments with this Washington Post newspaper book, featuring reprints of reports written at the time.
Following the Redskins’ relocation from Boston to Washington in 1937, things begin with the team’s 13-3 win over the Giants in front of nearly 25,000 fans. Later that same year, the Skins beat the Giants again, this time for the Eastern title, before securing their first Championship with victory over the Chicago Bears – both of which are games covered in here.
Thereafter, the team’s greatest victories are all featured, thus creating a fantastic reportage history for any diehard Redskins’ fan. Included in this is the Championship win in 1942, when the Skins again beat the Bears – this time 14-6.
The team’s fortunes during the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s also appear, not least with the Super Bowl victory of ‘83, when Hall of Famer John ‘The Diesel’ Riggins provided the signature play in a 27-17 win over the Dolphins. 1987’s Super Bowl victory over the Broncos features heavily, too, with the exploits of Doug Williams and Timmy Smith getting plenty of attention. Coverage of the team’s last Super Bowl win in 1991 also takes center stage.
As for the book itself, it measures in at an impressive 12.5 x 15”, with the choice of two striking editions – both gold-embossed for free. The first is our original burnt sienna cover, made with an antique-style coat; beautifully contrasting the book’s originally reported black and white content.
The second is our unrivalled, premium black leather hardback, frequently chosen for its effortlessly simple design. Not only does this leather book include the black and white re-mastered content, this edition features full-color pages from 2006 onwards, merging your team’s definitive history into a precious contemporary keepsake.
