This is an early logo of the Denver Broncos football team, used in their days in the old American Football League in the 1960s. Although they are an iconic franchise now, the Broncos were a study in futility in their AFL years. Despite winning the first-ever AFL game over the Patriots in 1960 and being the first AFL team to beat an NFL club (beating the Lions in a 1967 preseason game), Denver’s franchise had a losing record in all 10 seasons of their AFL existence. Some players from their early years included Frank Tripucka, Gene Mingo, Lionel Taylor, Ike Lassiter, Wahoo McDaniel and Austin “Goose” Gonsoulin.
