1963T Washington Redskins

A colorful franchise with a rich history in professional football that goes back to the 1930’s, the Washington Redskins are one of the most popular teams in pro sports.  The 1960’s however, were not so colorful, except for their uniforms, as the franchise languished at the bottom of the NFL.  Coming off a 5-7-2 season in 1962, the “Skins”, under Head Coach Bill McPeak, would sink deeper into the doldrums, winning only 3 games against 11 losses.

Although the team would have to wait nearly a decade for their next winning season and post-season appearance, the Redskins had their loyal fans.  They played a rough style of football, and their burgundy and gold uniforms, with the iconic spear on the helmet, drew crowds on cold autumn days.  RetroCards, always expanding the equally colorful 1963 football card style, now brings more of the Skins history to life with this 22-card set.  Figures of the franchise from the early ‘60’s include Vince Promuto, Joe Rutgens, Bob Pellegrini, Andy Stynchula, John Paluck, Jim Steffen, and the Khayat brothers, Ed and Bob.  Players that would achieve fame later with other teams include Johnny Sample, Bill Anderson, Dale Hackbart and Ron Snidow.  Unsung contributors, especially those mudders in the trenches, get their due, such as Fran O’Brien, Fred Hageman, Gorden Kelley, Harry Butsko and others.

The glamour of pro football didn’t only reside with the championship teams.  Sometimes it lay dormant with the franchises in their hard times.  So, if you are a hardcore Skins fan through it all, a fan of the style and color of the 1963 cards, or a discriminating collector of pro football history, here’s your chance to awaken more of the hidden glory that is the Washington Redskins.
