Effectively re-defining the order of professional football, the 1968 New York Jets marched into the AFL-NFL Championship Game (a.k.a. Super Bowl III) and vanquished the highly tauted Baltimore Colts. New York’s standard bearer was, of course, the none-to-reserved Joe Namath who, three days prior to the grand extravaganza, proclaimed “We’ll win the game, I guarantee it.” Ill-advised gasconade it may have been, but Broadway Joe made good, didn’t he…! For that contest there was made available this publication, the game’s official program. This one in Excellent condition. The commanding appeal of this program, though, is its Joe Namath autograph on the cover. It was likely penned more recently as it’s inscribed in blue felt tip (Joe Willie Namath ). The signature appears primarily against a uniformly white background and though perfectly clean, it projects at a quality of about “10”.
