About the Book
The 1958 Baltimore Colts were one of the greatest teams in pro football history. Owned by the controversial Carroll Rosenbloom and led by head coach Weeb Ewbank and six future Hall of Fame players—Johnny Unitas, Raymond Berry, Lenny Moore, Jim Parker, Art Donovan and Gino Marchetti—they won the NFL title that season, defeating the New York Giants in the first sudden death championship game in NFL history, laying the foundation for the ultra-popular spectacle the game would become with the American public.
They were a talented group of players. Many had been rejected or underappreciated at various points in their careers though they were loved and respected by the blue collar fans of Baltimore. This book tells the complete story of the ’58 Colts and the Charm City’s love affair with the team.
