Patriots Autograph of the Month - Lou Saban

Lou Saban was the first Head Coach of the new Boston Patriots of the brand new American Football Conference in 1960. In his last season at Western Illinois, before being hired to head the Patiots, his 1959 team had an undefeated 9–0 record. He coached the Patriots for two seasons 1960-1961. He then went to the Buffalo Bills and led them to the post-season three straight years (1963–1965) with championships in 1964 and 1965. He bounced around between college and the pros until 2002.

Saban played for the Cleveland Browns from 1946-1949 after playing college football for Indiana University.

Lou signed this 1961 Topps card and an index card through the mail in 2005.

He also signed the back. Sweet.

Lou Saban passed away March 29, 2009.
