It's almost imnpossible to find these old 1940's Browns programs any more. Here's a pretty decent example of one, from a game played Sept 3, 1948 against the Los Angeles Dons. Loaded with 52 pages of photos, stats, and neat old Cleveland advertising. Also has a full page photo of the 1947-1948 Cleveland Barons. The front cover has apparently has some exposure to moisture, it's a little wavy/puckered, and the pages in the front half of the program are also a little wavy at the top of the pages. The program is firmly held together by both staples, and there are a few spots of missing paper along the upper half of the spine. The cover, however, is firmly held in place. At the center page, a couple of newspaper clipping from the following day are taped, showing the stats. The only writing is on the quarter-by-quarter grid where the scoring was very neatly entered. Very neat old program. Will ship in the continental US for $4 including USPS insurance. Cleveland area winners can arrange for a free pick-up.
