Following the end of World War II, Americans turned to sports to get back to a sense of normalcy. The NFL was established in many East Coast cities, so a Chicago-based editor and sports enthusiast put together a new league to entertain fans nationwide. The short-lived league, the All American Football Conference, began play in 1946 and lasted through the 1949 season. Presented is a gorgeous store window display schedule for the LA Dons with incredible graphics and vibrant color. The Dons ended the season 7-7 playing teams with very familiar names, the Yankees, Dodgers, Bills, Colts, Browns and 49ers. With total measurements slightly larger than 11 x 15 when fully displayed, this piece is in absolutely fantastic condition with no tape marks or pinholes that are often seen in display ephemera. Memorabilia from the AAFC is scarce and usually well worn, this exhibits no signs wear, front or back, and is a fine example of 1940s advancements in graphics.
