Considered by some as the game that saved the NFL. Red Grange, the national sports sensation, had shocked the sports world two weeks earlier after signing a contract with the Chicago Bears after his last collegiate game. This was Grange's fourth professional game and 70,000 fans (the largest professional crowd by far to that point) filled the Polo Grounds to get a glimpse of the Galloping Ghost. Grange scored a touchdown on an interception return late in the game as the Bears defeated the Giants 19 - 7.

Many historians of the game feel that the Dec 6th contest and Grange added credibility to the professional game; paving the way for the growth and success of the NFL. The 12 page program has some light staining and mild creasing but presents well.

A historically significant program!
