Online Auction Description
12/21/1968 at Cleveland Stadium NFL Eastern Conference Championship beween the 12-2 Cowboys and the 10-4 Browns.

This was the last performance by Don Meredith as Dallas QB {Other than his representation in the Playoff Bowl for losing Playoff teams and the NFL Pro Bowl} as he announced his retirement the next summer. Ending with 3 straight Divsion Titles.

The Dallas Cowboys had represented the Eastern Conference in two straight NFL Championship games and were anticipating a third appearance as they faced the Cleveland Browns on December 21, 1968. Head Coach Tom Landry’s team had won the Capitol Division with a 12-2 record while scoring a league-high 431 points. The passing game, with QB Don Meredith throwing to wide receivers Bob Hayes and Lance Rentzel, was formidable and the running game produced even when HB Dan Reeves went down with a knee injury; along with veteran FB Don Perkins, HB Craig Baynham and FB Walt Garrison performed well in his absence. The defense was also strong and featured DT Bob Lilly, DE George Andrie, FS Mel Renfro, and linebackers Lee Roy Jordan and Chuck Howley.

The Cowboys had embarrassed Cleveland in the Eastern Conference playoff the year before by a score of 52-14 at the Cotton Bowl, one of four straight defeats that the Browns had suffered against them, including a 28-7 loss during the regular season. The Browns still had outstanding players on offense in HB Leroy Kelly, the NFL’s top rusher and scorer, and WR Paul Warfield. The defensive backfield was talented, as the Browns led the league with 32 interceptions.

On a cold day (abt 30 degrees) the game was controlled by the defenses with most of the scoring coming as a result of turnovers. The Cowboys actually led narrowly in total yards (286 to 280) and first downs (13 to 12). However, they also turned the ball over four times – all on interceptions – and that proved to be the difference. Don Meredith had 3 INT's and 1 by Craig Morton. Brown's Win 31-20!

Nice glossy stub with a little hadnling wear to the lef tside where the usher grabbed it to tear it with the score written on the reverse side
