The 1949 season was the last in the AAFC for the Baltimore Colts, they posted a 1-11 mark before merging into the NFL. This original 11x14 team photo comes from that installment. Some scattered wear and light creasing make this collectible a low grade specimen, but the rarity of this particular image and the autographs which accompany it easily overshadow that! The (36) black fountain pen signatures average ("6") with: Dick Barwegan, Herb Bechtol, William Beson (d.1959), Ernie Blandin, Ken Cooper, Bob Cowan, Lamar Davis, Spiro Dellerba, Everette Faunce, Barry French, Lou Gambino, Dub Garrett (d.1976), Byron Gillory, Rex Grossman (d.1980), Harry "Chick" Jagade (d.1968), Jon Jenkins, Wayne Kingery, Jake Leicht, Bill Leonard, Fritz Lutz (trainer; d.1954), John Mellus, Bus Mertes, John North, Bob Nowaskey (d.1971), Charlie O'Rourke, Paul Page, Bob Pfohl, Felto Prewitt, John Sanborne, Al Sidorik, Jim Spruill, Billy Stone, Pete Tillman, Y.A. Tittle, Sam Vacanti, Windel Williams. Auction LOA from JSA.
