Harvard and Yale football in 1911...
Item # 580273
October 25, 1911
SPRINGFIELD DAILY REPUBLICAN, Massachusetts, November 24 & 25, 1911 (a two-issue set) The front page of one issue has the team photo of The Harvard Football Team (with names) and front page of the other issue has the team photo of The Yale Football Team (with names). The images are somewhat faded (see images), but take on a period look. These make a great set for Harvard-Yale football enthusiasts. Several (eventual) College Football Hall of Fame members are present, including Bob Fisher, Percy Wendell, Hank Ketcham, Art Howe, and more. Great to have in a Massachusetts newspaper (relatively close to both institutions).
Other news of the day and period advertising can be found throughout, including sports and entertainment.
Each issue is complete in 20 pages, is VERY fragile (typical of the period), has even brown toning, and small edge tears. For the period, they are quite nice, but MUST be handled with care. framing them would be a great idea.
