2nd Annual AFL All-Star Game Program

1963 afl all star program

I was looking through some of my files yesterday when I came across my copy of the game program from the AFL All-Star Game that was played on January 13, 1963.  I really like this piece, and thought that you might as well.

I purchased this program nearly 10 years ago in a large collection.  It came from the collection of a man who, as a boy, would attend AFL games at Balboa Stadium and get his gum cards and game programs autographed by the ballplayers.  This particular program has been signed by 20 players: Wayne Hawkins, Arch Matsos, Paul Lowe, Chuck Allen, Mel Branch, Tobin Rote, Cotton Davidson, Lance Alworth, Bud McFadin, Goose Gonsoulin, Ed Budde, Fred Williamson, Emil Karas, Duane Wood, Garland Boyette, Jack Kemp, Jim Otto, Ernie Ladd, Keith Lincoln and Dave Kocourek. read more
