On Feb. 13, 1937, the Washington Redskins were officially born.
The NFL approved the transfer of the team from Boston to Washington, D.C., and the Redskins moved into Griffith stadium under head coach Ray Flaherty. The decision proved to be successful.
The team finished the regular season with an 8-3 record under the helm of quarterback Sammy Baugh and beat the Chicago Bears 28-21 at Wrigley Field in front of 15,878 fans to win the NFL Championship.
As it so happens, we received a pretty cool photo from a fan to celebrate this anniversary.
Above is a framed and signed team photo from 1937, which contains every autograph from the players shown, including Baugh (No. 33), who set 13 NFL records as a quarterback, punter and defensive back and is considered one of the greatest football players of all-time.
This has to be one of the greatest pieces of Redskins memorabilia of all-time, too.
