Default Cleveland Browns' 1946 championship trophy found

Cleveland Browns' 1946 championship trophy found

One of four NFL teams without a Super Bowl appearance, the Cleveland Browns finally have a tangible sign of their eight championships prior to the modern era.

Digging through a box in his North Carolina garage as part of the reality show "Garage Gold" on the DIY Network, the grandson of a former team minority owner found a trophy commemorating the 1946 All-America Football Conference championship.

The AAFC did not present teams with trophies, so the 38 players commissioned a pair for owner Arthur B. McBride and minority owner Daniel Sherby.

The 1946 season not only jump-started the Browns franchise, but was also the first of 10 consecutive seasons in the title game under Hall of Fame coach Paul Brown.

The Browns won AAFC titles in 1946, '47, '48 and '49, and then they won the NFL title in their first year in the league in 1950. The NFL did not hand out permanent championship trophies until 1966.

That's cool. I've never been a Browns fan at all but, they have great fans and most of my family are fans. The lone exception being myself and my mother... she's one of you...lol.

Living where I live (Massillon Oh.) it's impossible to escape the Browns...lol. Our high school football team was coached by Paul Brown and they they play in Paul Brown Tiger Stadium.

Yes I agree, the Browns do have very good fans. Many are die-hards and loyal just like Steeler fans. Interesting article. The Browns had some pretty darn good teams back in the day, especially when they came into the NFL in 1950.
