The Bigger They Are...

October 22, 2016

 

I found this old Cleveland Browns Official Program in my Grandfather’s Basement.

 

From October 11, 1970, the Cover was a variety of Marvel Comics characters getting ready to play some football, Illustrated by THE Stan Lee.  But that’s not what’s surprising about the issue.  It’s the sizes of the Monsters of the Gridiron in 1970 compared to today.  Heck, you wonder if an NFL team from 1970 could compete with a COLLEGE team from today.
