September 4, 1960

Not much news came from the Raider organization today, but the city of Oakland announced they would be holding a “Meet Your Raiders” parade on the 8th to give the locals a chance to see the players before they headed across the bay to play the Oilers on the following Sunday. The route would begin at Jack London Square and end up near Lake Merritt. Players, in uniform, would participate in the parade and provide autographs and photo opportunities afterward. Free eye patches would be given away to kids and an eight-foot long football made of flowers in Raider colors would be in evidence near city hall.
