1939 NFL Season Pass Ticket with Rare Carl Storck Facsimile Signature MUST READ PSA Graded

Carl Storck (born January 22, 1887 - March 13, 1950) was a co-founder of the National Football League, as well as the founding owner of the Dayton Triangles. He was also the Triangles coach from 1922 until 1926. Storck served as the secretary-treasurer of the NFL from 1921 to 1939. Upon the death of Joe Carr, he served as president of the National Football League. Citing ill health, Storck only held the title of president until 1941. Storck started his football career as a local football hero in Dayton, Ohio, staring for St. Mary's College (now known as Dayton University). After graduation, Stork played semi-pro football for a local team that would later become the Dayton Tirangles. Storck became the team's manager in 1918 and guide his team into the the NFL (then called the American Professional Football Association). He represented Dayton at Ralph Hay's Hupmobile dealership on September 17, 1920. This meeting marked the formation of the NFL. Like nearly all managers, Storck was an unpaid volunteer; he had fulltime employment as a job foreman in the Inspection and Packing Department at the National Cash Register Company. The Triangles would have trouble competing in the increasingly competitive NFL, and Storck would eventually sell them in 1930 to Bill Dwyer, who moved the team to Brooklyn and named them the Brooklyn Dodgers.

The original title of President of the National Football League was bestowed upon Joe Carr and the title of Commissioner did not go into effect until 1960 when Pete Rozelle took the helm of the NFL leadership.

The SUPER RARE one-of-a-kind pass measuring 3.5” x 2.25” was given to Rosey Roswell (the Pittsburgh Pirates first broadcaster) and is in EX-NR MT condition. It features a facsimile signature of Storck on the front with a very ornate NFL logo (used at the time) and the list of cities (there were 11 with Chicago having 2 teams) that had NFL teams.

This is the only season pass that we’ve ever seen with Storck’s name on the pass.
