The latest issue of The Coffin Corner is now available for immediate download from the PFRA website. The issue contains:

PFRA-ternizing
PFRA President George Bozeka has the details about the 2023 PFRA Convention in Pittsburgh. Registration methods are listed. The hotel accommodations and convention location are listed and the extra activities are included, along with the costs. The current list of speakers is outlined, along with the schedule of events.

Hall of Very Good Ballot
The annual Hall of Very Good ballot has twenty candidates. Each ballot must include 10 votes. The methods of vote casting are included on the ballot.

The 1947 Season in Review
Andy Piascik’s review of the 1947 NFL season examines more than just the biggest games and eventual champion. The season’s role in the game’s progression is examined, too. Single platoon football was ending, which gave a start to the rise of specialists we have today. The top players and personalities of the era, plus some questionable awards voting, are all spelled out.

December 15, 1963: Showdown in the Bronx
Jim Marino examines a little-known classic confrontation between the New York Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers in New York on December 15, 1963. The winner would be crowned champion of the NFL’s Eastern Conference champion and go on to play the Chicago Bears for the championship. The game was near the end of some Hall of Fame careers. It was also the final major victory for a great era of Giants teams.

Hugh McElhenny Was the 49ers Franchise Savior
Martin Jacobs argues that Hall of Fame running back Hugh McElhenny saved the San Francisco franchise. Attendance was small and ticket prices were low, so the franchise was in trouble. McElhenny’s impact is examined.

I agree. This is the best issue of Coffin Corner in a long time, with three substantial articles about three excellent subjects.

I noticed this issue only has illustrations and no photographs. Is that a new design choice going forward? Or were photographs hard to find for the subject matter?

The illustrations were a choice made for this issue. We will continue to use photos and illustrations in the future.

This was a special covid issue. Sounds like Lee came off the bench and performed well under pressure.

Yes he did. The amount of work it takes to put together a single issue is more than people realize. Kudos to Lee!!
