Default 1890s Yale football

Hello,

I'm writing a book on Frank Hinkey and the 1890s Yale football teams. Let me know if anyone has interesting/unique memorabilia to share. Would be glad to purchase but will settle for scans.

I acquired a large collection of Frank Hinkey memorabilia from descendants of his wife. Here are scans of his personal 1895 Yale yearbook with bookplate and signature.

Front cover of yearbook.


Library ownership sticker on inside front cover


Signed first page in upper right corner

Cheers

Mark

Mark- I wish I could contribute but sadly have nothing to offer. I will be a buyer of the book though, please keep us posted.

I don't have anything specific to that era of Yale football to share, but I collect early Harvard football material, so I certainly appreciate the topic!

Hope you don't mind my sharing - this picture from my office wall includes an 1894 Harvard pennant (right in line with Hinkey's era), along with a 1903 panoramic of the new Harvard football stadium. The action shot is from a Harvard - Yale game in New Haven from 1908.

Good luck with the project!
Scott

Default Harvard guys

Scott,

Very cool display. Since you are a Harvard guy I am posting two 19th century Harvard autographs from my private collection.

William H Lewis - 1891-93 Harvard center, first African-American All-American and earliest college football HOFer. He became a prominent lawyer and was appointed to US Assistant Attorney General.


Charles D Daly - Harvard All-American QB from 1898-1900. Transferred to Army on request from Teddy Roosevelt, where he played from 1901-02. Considered the only 5x All-American football player and inaugural member of the college football HOF. I was blessed to purchase his personal estate from his grand-daughter, which is now in the West Point Archives. I kept a couple autographs and a beautiful handpainting by him.

Default 1894 Yale

Here are a couple pieces I acquired from Harold Letton's grandson. Letton was a sub on the 1894 Yale football team.

Thanks for the comment - I will start a new thread shortly with some material, so as not to hijack / detract from Mark's great Yale materials!

Great thread - fun to see all these items (and that's true even though I'm a Princeton fan!

Here are a few ticket stubs in my collection. Top two are Princeton-Yale, and the bottom one is from the 1894 "Hampden Park Bloodbath":
