Top Fantasy Seasons from each decade prior to 2000

Fantasy football actually started up in '62 by Bill Winkenbach (then a limited partner in the Oakland Raiders) with assistance from Bill Tunnell, the Raiders' public relations man, Scotty Stirling (the beat writer from the Oakland Tribune), and George Ross (the Tribune's sports editor), as well as Philip Carmona (Winkenbach's friend).

Here's a look at the top seasons many of us missed from a Fantasy perspective.
