The Dallas Cowboys are one of the most storied franchises in NFL history. The Cowboys joined the NFL in 1960 as an expansion team, and it didn’t take long for them to establish themselves as a perennial powerhouse franchise. Dallas has made the most Super Bowl appearances in league history with eight, and from 1966-1985 the Cowboys reeled off an NFL-record 20-consectuvie winning seasons.
The Cowboys began dominating the field when future Hall of Fame quarterback Roger Staubach took over the team’s passing duties. During the 1971 season, Staubach emerged as the quarterback that would take the Dallas franchise to new heights. After a rocky start to the season, Staubach led the Cowboys to 10-consecutive wins, including their first Super Bowl titles in team history with a 24-3 win over the Miami Dolphins. Staubach led the Cowboys to another Super Bowl title in 1977 against the Denver Broncos.
After Staubach retired in 1979, the Cowboys continued to make deep playoff runs, but did not make a Super Bowl appearance in the 1980s – Staubach led them to four appearances in the ‘70s. In 1989, Jerry Jones bought the Dallas Cowboys and didn’t waste any time before making moves that would drastically help the franchise regain its winning ways. Jones hired Jimmy Johnson, who led the University of Miami to a National Championship, to be the Cowboys’ next coach; he then used the top overall pick in the draft to select Troy Aikman. Jones, who on top of being team owner also handled all personnel decisions, established himself as a fantastic evaluator of talent and began to build a championship team through the NFL draft.
Jones drafted impact players like Emmitt Smith and Darren Woodson, and teamed them up with the established talents of Michael Irvin and Troy Aikman. With the talented core Jones put together the Cowboys enjoyed one of the most successful seasons in franchise history in 1992, the team went 13-3 and routed the Buffalo Bills 52-17 in Super Bowl XXVII. The Cowboys repeated as Super Bowl champions the following year by taking down the Bills 30-13 in Super Bowl XXVIII. After winning back-to-back Super Bowl’s, Jimmy Johnson resigned as head coach, forcing Jones to hire Barry Switzer as his replacement. During the offseason, Jones made another fantastic personnel move when he added future Hall of Famer Deion Sanders to the team. With these moves the Cowboys returned to the top of the NFL with a Super Bowl XXX win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. The win gave the franchise its fifth Super Bowl title – a feat only matched by two other teams. With this autographed photo, Cowboys fans can add signatures from three Hall of Famers to their memorabilia collection.
