1960 Box Bottoms

Dallas was awarded a pro football franchise as part of the NFL on January 28, 1960 at the annual owners meeting. After a long battle with the current NFL teams and George Halas, Texas finally had an NFL franchise. George Preston Marshall, owner of the Washington Redskins, had a monopoly in the south and fought hard to keep any new team from forming south of D.C. The vote for expansion had to be unanimous among the current owners, so Marshall was the last obstacle for Clint Murchinson Jr. to overcome.

Since the NFL draft took place in December of 1959, the Cowboys weren't able to participate. This made it very difficult to acquire young talent. In March of '60, the 'expansion draft' (the brain-trust of Halas) allowed the Cowboys to choose from a pool of players from each NFL team.

The first Cowboys training camp at Pacific University (Forest Grove, Oregon) was a crowded field of nearly 100 hopefuls trying to make the team. Several men made it past the first couple rounds of cuts and were around long enough to be photographed in uniform for an early team photo and individual shots. RetroCards honors those players that were there but didn't make the final roster, along with the guys that made that very first Cowboys team in 1960.
