The offered leather-bound ledger details day-to-day transactions and operations of the 1937 Washington Redskins. From the club's inaugural season in the nation's capital, this 152-page 15x13 volume features meticulously kept receipts, listing players and organizations to which the team's monies were being directed. Handwritten notations list players and their stipends, opposing teams and their gate receipt shares, and miscellaneous expenses like $70.45 for Sammy Baugh's transportation from his Texas home to training camp. With covers and all pages intact, the item presents nicely, though there is wear about the spine and a 3 piece missing from the lower portion of the spine's covering.
