While they may not have “written the book” on professional football, the New York Giants have had their fair share of championship appearances (19). Way back in 1939, already making the fifth of those title game dates, the Giants felt compelled to autograph this vintage hardcover edition of “Pro Football: Its Ups and Downs” (1934, J.B. Lyon Company). On the fly leaf, (28) members of the 1939 roster have signed in steel tip fountain pen. Beautiful and legible cursive scriptings average (“9”) potency and include: Barnum, Burnett, Carroll (clubhouse attendant), Cole, Cope, Cuff, Danowski, Falaschi, Gelatka, Hein, Howell, Johnson, Karcis, Kline, Lunday, Mauch (trainer), Mellus, Miller, Oldershaw, A. Owen, Parry, Poole, Richards, Shaffer, Soar, Strong, Tuttle, Walls, White and Widseth. The page is also signed by former Giant player and Hall of Famer Cliff Battles. With sturdy covers and all crisp pages intact, the book presents nicely.
