Here's Steve's introduction as a new NY Giant in 1926



Here's his autograph on a team signed page from 1929



And a picture as a player in 1930



And 1931, when he also took over as Giants Head Coach

Great stuff!!!!....Is this the father of Steve Owens that was a RB, won the Heisman and played for Oklahoma??

Now we are into his coaching career

In 1933 the Giants played the Bears in the first ever Championship playoff - here Steve signed the program



He had three covers in the Diamond matchbooks, this one from 1934



In 1934 the Giants won the NFL Championship in the famous Sneakers game - the team was given small football watch fobs, this is Steve's



Over the years there were many press photos of Steve as Coach





This was from his 25th Anniversary as Coach - a silver tea set



Steve got a card in the 1952 Bowman set



Steve was a favorite after dinner speaker



By 1953 the Giants were struggling and young players, like Frank Gifford, wanted Owen out, and he was "moved upstairs" The night before his last game he was on a television show and he's pictured here with his wife and my father - Steve is holding the game ball from the Sneakers Championship



Here is looking at the field from his office before the last game



Steve was hired by the Philadelphia Eagles



Then went on to coach in Canadian football, where he is also in the Hall of Fame



He eventually returned to the Giants where everyone thought he belonged - here is a book from his library signed by Earl "Greasy" Neale, sportswriter Frank Graham, Ken Strong and Elmer Layden - Strong writes "Still My Coach"

No, some confusion over that, especially when it comes to autographs. The Heisman winner was Owens, the Giants coach was Owen.

Mike and Showdawg - great thread. Showdawg, if you take requests, I'd love to see what you have of Marion Motley. I think I may have seen what looked like the original artwork to his 1950 Bowman cards in one of your pics. No rush though - please finish with Jim Brown first - I'm not trying to hijack.
