7-0 Patriots Gameday Autographs

Did not get any TTM Patriots returns this week so I have to go back to the archives for this one.

Lou Saban was the first head coach for the then Boston Patriots.
He went 5-9 in 1960 his first season and was fired after a 2-3 start in 1961 when management thought he wasn't utilizing the talent they thought he had on the team.
He went on to win 2 AFL Championships with the Buffalo Bills in 1964 and 1965.
Maybe the Pats pulled the trigger too soon.

He passed away in 2009 at the age of 87.

Lou signed this 1961 Fleer card for me from his home in 2005.
He also signed the back.

Too cool.
