A lavishly illustrated celebration of one of the NFL’s most beloved teams, the Indianapolis Colts.From the Inside Flap:
This lavishly illustrated history of the NFL’s Colts celebrates an iconic franchise from its origins to the present day. With an era of great success in Baltimore from 1950 to 1983, the Colts established themselves early on as one of the league’s premier teams. Fielding Pro Football Hall of Famers such as Johnny Unitas, Raymond Berry, John Mackey, Gino Marchetti, and Lenny Moore, the Colts became part of the fabric of the city—and the team’s eventual decision to leave Baltimore dealt a major blow to NFL fans in the area. Since the move to Indianapolis in 1984, the Colts have reclaimed greatness in their “new” home. Hall of Famers Eric Dickerson and Marshall Faulk brought life to the Colts’ rushing attack in the 1980s and 1990s, and with almost perennial playoff appearances since 2000, Indianapolis fans have rallied behind an exceptional group of NFL stars that has featured Peyton Manning, Marvin Harrison, Reggie Wayne, Dallas Clark, Edgerrin James, Dwight Freeney, and Robert Mathis.
The history of the Colts has been written on the field in gridiron battles with NFL rivals such as the Giants, Jets, and Patriots. From NFL Championships in 1958, 1959, and 1968, to triumphs in Super Bowls V and XLI, the Colts are one of the NFL’s most successful and storied franchises. Author Lew Freeman highlights the team’s past and present with fascinating anecdotes, player profiles, and in-depth analysis, while iconic photos, classic memorabilia, and captivating stories bring fans face-to-face with a half century of memorable moments from their beloved Colts.
