Here are the 1948 cards.

I hope to have the COMPLETE collection within the year.

Enjoy

Re: Collectors, what's the most unusual item you have?

I tried to make copies of the blueprint but the company I took it to said it was copyrighted. I'd make 10 copies for some of you guys if I could.
I think 72skinsfan is in manassass and said he might be able to. I will still do it if I can.
peace

Re: Collectors, what's the most unusual item you have?

The most unusual item I have in my collection is one of the bids for the purchase of the team and stadium in '97 from the Cooke estate. The owner of my company (Charles Dolan) placed a bid for the team and the stadium. Obviously he failed and about two years ago I found two 4' white binders in a recycling container that had Redskin Logo's on it. To my surprise it was all the detailed information of all the items for sale by the estate including the stadium, the team, player contracts, legal affidavits etc. It's all a very boring read, but a unique collectible none the less.

Re: Collectors, what's the most unusual item you have?

I have a big lock of Jay Schroeder's hair that my mom ripped off of him during the Super Bowl parade in '88.
J/k

I guess the coolest thing I have (from a personal standpoint) is a picture of me and Art Monk that was taken at his camp when I was about 10 years old. I'm rockin' the camp's hat, which had a Zubaz-patterned brim, so that rules.
Plus I have another picture of my cousin and I from when we went the prior year, and in it Art is wearing a Hard Rock Cafe t-shirt and a huge fanny pack.
You've got to love the early '90s.

I have an autographed 1991 Mark Rypien card, I can't remember the make.

I used to collect cards when I was 12-14, but I stopped. That one sticks out in my mind as a cool collectible though.

My mom underwrote a loan on a house for Mark Rypien. Afterwards, she met him at a restaurant and got his autograph on a napkin.

Re: Collectors, what's the most unusual item you have?

Growing up, my dad used to have Joe Theisman's toilet seat hanging on the wall in his bathroom, I thought it was the coolest thing in the world. He painted/remodled his Joe's house and took the toilet seat as a gag, the funny thing is the toilet seat was burgundy.

Re: Collectors, what's the most unusual item you have?

I have 2 packs of official Redskins chewing gum.

I also have an autographed team picture from around 1952 with Dick Alban's signature. He was at a NFLPA golf tourney 7 or so years ago. He was the shit back then. Lost the most interceptions that season to Dick "Night Train" Lane. "Night Train" set the record that year with 14 and he got like 3 the last game. At least thats what Dick told me and I don't havce any reason to doubt it.

Re: Collectors, what's the most unusual item you have?

I've got a miller lite football autographed by Ben Davidson{tastes great-less filling!] of the raiders that I won at the greatest sports bar I've ever been to,no longer in existance unfortunely
They had a tire hanging from a rope in the cage they clocked people's fastball,most footballs to make it through the tire won
damn i miss that bar,it had a dancefloor that was a boxing ring,with bleachers on each side and skyboxes,minibowling alley,caged basketball area,plus the pitching cage I already mentioned,it was called Houstons original Sports Bar
I also won cash in a skyhook competition in the basketball cage,I entered a Larry Bird lookalike contest there but lost to a black guy,lol

Re: Collectors, what's the most unusual item you have?

A blue print of redskins' Stadium!!! I'm just a little jealous.

The most unusual item I have are three of the RC cans from 1977 that are flat (never actually rolled into cans).

I have four cards from 1935 as Boston Redskins

The Leaf and Bowman rookie cards of Sammy Baugh

A seat from RFK

A trading card collection of Redskins team sets that uses 15 binders

An original hand written version of "Hail to the Redskins"-----Just kidding

An original photgraph of Sonny J and Coach Lombardi on the sidlines at RFK

Lots and lots of other things including about 12 autographs

Re: Collectors, what's the most unusual item you have?

i have always envied your collection SBF. I hope that someday i'll have a collection like that. I guess i will someday. I mean I'm already getting autographs on footballs and a few autographed jerseys.

My two coolest things are

1) my redskins jersey that is signed by 30ish players and coaches. Bugel, gibbs, moss, tayor, portis, cooley, samuels, jansen, griffin, washington, thomas, and others all signed the jersey. I got all the autographs in one year so its great. Its the players of the century jersey eBay: AUTHENTIC Washington Redskins Player Century Jersey 54 (item 280127793197 end time Jun-29-07 19:03:47 PDT)
It has no holes in the jersey so it easy to sign and there are autographs all over the front. What i like is that there is no other jersey like it. I wouldn't sell it for anything. I am going to get that thing signed for the next 20 years. I love it.

2) Joe gibbs signed game ball used at the redskins ravens scrimmage. Also signed by chris cooley. I wish i didn't get his autograph on it though because it would have been nice to just be of gibbs. A ball used in a game(scrimmage, cough) that was coached by gibbs. I lik e that too.

Re: Collectors, what's the most unusual item you have?

I have all sorts of items, but I think my most prized possession is my Super Bowl XXVI program signed by every player on the team including Joe Gibbs.

I remember when my sister in law got for me for christmas, I had to hold back the tears!
