No other sports team in Washington, D.C., inspires as much love and devotion as the Redskins, those gridiron warriors in burgundy and gold. The Washington Redskins Football VaultŪ: The History of a Proud Franchise traces the team s entire incredible story, from the early days in Boston to the hiring of Mike Shanahan as head coach and the trade for quarterback Donovan McNabb in 2010. Author Michael Richman, the official Redskins historian, is a veteran journalist who has covered D.C. sports for more than 20 years. In this book, Richman, a Redskins fanatic since his youth, combines game coverage with behind-the-scenes stories that make the history of the Redskins so fascinating. But the real treasures in this detailed scrapbook are the vintage photographs and memorabilia discovered in private collections and the Redskins archives. Fans will find reproductions of old game-program covers, historic tickets, vintage bumper stickers, posters and much more. Replicas include a panoramic photo of the 1939 team, Sammy Baugh s 1949 contract, a letter from the attorney general to Sonny Jurgensen and even a letter from Jack Kent Cooke to Joe Theismann after his devastating injury. All of this and more is locked inside the Washington Redskins Football VaultŪ: The History of a Proud Franchise. No Skins fan should be without this home archive of the long and colorful history of Washington s pro football team.
