Obtained directly from the family of former Chicago Bears great Bill Osmanski, this significant collection superbly represents the 1940 NFL Championship and the team's 73-0 throttling of the Washington Redskins.

The publication also exhibits medium wear and five small piece of tape on the back cover; also included is a team-signed banquet program. The "Union Pacific Yellowstone" piece exhibits medium wear throughout, while the following notable signatures average 6/10 quality: Bulldog Turner, Dan Fortmann, Bill Osmanski, Joe Stydahar and others. Wonderful collection from a former member of one of the most dominant championship teams in the history of the league. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA.
