    1933 NFL Championship Ticket Stub - 1st Ever League Title Game in History! Though NFL supremacy had been assigned previously, granted to the team boasting the best regular season record, this December 17, 1933 contest was the first time that the honor would be determined by a single gridiron contest. The creation of an Eastern and Western division in the 1933 NFL had been the impetus for the winner-take-all battle, setting the Chicago Bears (10-2-1) and the New York Giants (11-3) upon a collision course at Wrigley Field.

    The twenty-five thousand spectators in attendance were treated to one of the most dramatic contests in the history of the sport, a see-saw battle featuring early legends Mel Hein, Ken Strong, Bronko Nagurski and Red Grange. The next day, the Associated Press described the twenty-three to twenty-one Bears victory as "probably the most spectacular game of the year," and "a brilliant display of offensive power."

    Presented here is one of only three original '33 NFL Championship stubs ever slabbed by the experts at PSA. Exhibiting considerable creasing throughout, it has the game's result neatly written in period fountain pen ink on the verso. Encapsulated by PSA, Authentic.
