1963 AFL New York Jets (1st Season as "Jets") Team-Signed Football (29) with Don Maynard et al
Very vintage team-signed football documents the The 1963 New York Jets season - the fourth season for the team in the American Football League (AFL) and the first under the team moniker "Jets." Offers 29 very vintage autographs well-penned on this official size MacGregor ball, including many perennial AFL Pro Bowl-ers and Hall of Famer Don Maynard, plus: Jim Price, coach Chuck Knox, Walt Michaels, Roy Hord, Curley Johnson, Bob Baird, Dave Yohn, Bill Mathis, Galen Hall, LaVerne Torczon, Paul Rochester, Dick Christy, Winston Hill, Sid Fournet, George H. Sauer, Sherman Plunkett, Bake Turner, Dee Mackey, Tony Stricker, Chuck Janerette, Jack Klotz, Dick Guesman, Bob McAdams, Dainard Paulson, Dan Ficca, Mark Smolinski, Ed Cooke and Larry Grantham. Easy to date to '63 as this was the only season in New York for QB Galen Hall, and the only season shared with many other signers. Each signature is conscientiously rendered and extremely legible, a point worth noting in this challenging format and signing surface.
Needless to say, but we will, the scarcity of such early team-signed AFL relics is extreme. This is a beautiful specimen and representation.
