Overview

From the first game as a member of the upstart American Football League in 1960 through the 2009 National Football League season, the Buffalo Bills Football Vault®: The First 50 Seasons explores the history of a proud franchise. Scott Pitoniak provides an inside look at the Bills, including owner Ralph Wilson Jr.'s decision to buy an AFL expansion franchise, Buffalo's two AFL titles in the 1960s, the franchise's four consecutive Super Bowl trips and Wilson's 2009 induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. But what makes this detailed "scrapbook" unique are the vintage photographs, artwork and memorabilia discovered in the Bills' archives. Fans will find reproductions of old game program covers, historic tickets, vintage bumper stickers and much more. Replicas include a 1960 "The Bills Are Back" letter to fans, a 1960s-style pennant, a 1980s "Talking Proud" card, a ticket to Super Bowl XXV and a "Back The Bills" bumper sticker. No Bills fan should be without this home archive of Buffalo's long and illustrious pro football history.
