Todd Tobias's interest in the American Football League began in 1998, when he wrote my master's thesis about Sid Gillman. He created this site to educate and entertain football fans with the stories of the American Football League, 1960-1969. You can follow Todd and get more AFL history on Twitter @TalesfromtheAFL.

  1. And we’re Thankful for you and all your hard work, Todd…and your willingness to Share so much with us! Have a great day!!!

  2. Y’know what? You should post the picture (taken vs. the Jets) from which this cover was made…it would be a great juxtaposition (yeah, that’s a big, English-teacher word). If you don’t have it–and I can’t believe that you wouldn’t–I’ve got a copy.
