Kansas City Chiefs Encyclopedia: 3rd Edition by Mark Stallard

Texas oil millionaire Lamar Hunt’s pursuit of a professional football franchise led to the formation of a new league and ultimately a revolutionary change in the pro game itself. Hunt’s new team, the Dallas Texans, began play in the American Football league in 1960, and following the 1962 season, moved to Kansas City. They were renamed the Chiefs, and one of football’s great success stories was established. This chronicle of the history of the Kansas City Chiefs franchise covers everything—its beginning in Dallas with head coach Hank Stram, the great 1962 AFL championship game, the move to Kansas City, the AFL’s merger with the NFL, the team’s disappointing loss to the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl I, the magnificent victory over the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IV, the down-and-out years, and the return to the playoffs under Dick Vermeil. All historical moments, players, games, and coaches are included. This newly revised encyclopedia offers statistics and biographies for each and every player that has been part of the Kansas City Chiefs. Included within is a foreword by former player Otis Taylor. The Kansas City Chiefs Encyclopedia includes hundreds of photos of players, game action, stadiums, and more. The complete reference book on the Chiefs, the encyclopedia is a book that all true Kansas City fans must have.
