The Heidi Game (Bowl)....



Item # 660241

November 18, 1968

LEOMINSTER ENTERPRISE, Massachusetts, November 18, 1968

* The Heidi Game - Bowl
* Oakland Raiders vs. New York Jets
* Rare piece of NFL football folklore


The top of page 5 has a two column heading: "Heidi Tosses Block At TV Football Fans" Small binding holes along the spine slightly affects this report. (see) Also page 7 has another related article with a three column heading: "Irate TV Fans Miss Dramatic Finale As Oakland Topples New York 43-32" (see) I suspect not many issues were kept as this event became famous over time. Very rare as such.
Complete with all 12 pages, light toning and minor wear at the margins, small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.

wikipedia notes: The Heidi Game led to a change in the way professional football is shown on network television; games are shown to their conclusion before evening programming begins. To ensure that network personnel could communicate under similar circumstances, special telephones (dubbed "Heidi phones") were installed, with a connection to a different telephone exchange from other network phones. In 1997, the Heidi Game was voted the most memorable regular season game in pro football history.
