The above Cleveland.com video shows the Browns' Manager of Alumni Relations, Tony Dick, discussing the story of how the team recently recovered the team's 1946 All-American Football Conference championship trophy. North Carolina citizen Gary Cole, the grandson of former Browns minority manager Daniel Sherby, enlisted the help of DIY Network's Garage Gold for a move. The crew found the trophy and realized its significance when they brought it to a local appraiser, who fortuitously happened to be a Cleveland native.
"To me it's pretty special that we actually have something physical that you can look at and it says we won a championship," Dick says of the trophy that is now in possession of the organization. "When you walk into the building now, you can actually see it, and I think that makes a huge difference."
