Franco Harris ended career with Seahawks
Thank you for your interest in my auction. Only 1 left! Light fold. This program is in excellent condition. Approx 15 pages. Program is in Great Shape - however, the end edges of a couple of pages have slight, slight wave - not that noticeable. So this is both ends of the annual doubleheader. The insides are especially nice. The program itself has a little spine wear due to the relatively large pages size, but few flaws otherwise. Overall, a nice, clean, authentic example. All 46 pages are inside and the program appears to have been rolled at one time or another, there is also some wear along the corners and some fading and discoloring through out.
