1979 Diplomats

The Washington Star featured the '79 Diplomats individual photos as part of their NASL preview coverage. How they confused Art Welch and Sakib Viteskic is any ones guess.

Wim Jansen Joins the Diplomats

March 6, 1980: The Dips hold a press to announce their third major acquisition, Wim Jansen, for the 1980 season. An interesting side note, the jersey from the press conference showed up on ebay about 20 years later along with a 1979 team picture and another photo. If anyone knows where it is or wants to sell, feel free to contact me.
