I recently received a shipment containing my third purchase of photographs from former Buffalo Bills photographer, Robert L. Smith. We have an arrangement in which I have given Mr. Smith some suggestions as to the types of images I like, the players, years, themes, etc. He then makes selections from his collection of vintage prints, and sends them to me sight-unseen. Some might consider it an odd arrangement, but I’ve been increasingly pleased with each batch that I’ve been sent. This third installment is no different.
Mr. Smith has become a big fan of this site, and has offered Tales from the American Football League readers a special gift with their photo purchases via his eBay store, simply for mentioning this site. That’s a nice treat, as is the opportunity to look through the decades of his work, and remember the many great players that once called Buffalo their home.
