    1948 NFL Western Championship Wristwatch Presented to Paul Christman. The backbone of the famed "Million Dollar Backfield" which helped lead the Chicago Cardinals to the 1947 NFL Championship, quarterback Paul Christman was awarded this wristwatch the following season after the red birds claimed the Western division's top honors. The "Hamilton" watch remains in splendid working condition with original wristband, and is engraved upon verso, "Chicago Cardinals, N.F.L. Western Champions, 1948, Paul Christman." Included for display purposes is an EX copy of the 1948 book Tricks in Passing by Paul Christman featuring a great image of the Cardinals quarterback on the cover and ninety pages of his wisdom within.
