Default College Football Advertising Cabinet

Just picked this up last week from ebay. It's a large cabinet card advertising the Nov 28, Thanksgiving Day showdown between Dartmouth and Brown (the Big Green won 22-0).

This seems to have been a popular publicity campaign for the school. I've seen another copy of this cabinet on ebay where the seller provided a nice write up of the piece. I've also seen postcards from other years with the same motif of the coach, trainer and captain. The man on the left is an athletic trainer named John Bowler, the man in the middle is Captain John O'Connor and on the far right is the coach, Walter McCornack.

I think the piece has a cool aesthetic and the Rah-Rah quotes below the photograph just make me chuckle a bit.

Nice piece, Peter!

Nothing new for me but I did recently purchase a display cabinet that came from an old drugstore.

Here's my first attempt at a pre-war football display.

Peter, didn't see your post til now. I grew up near Brown and now live near Dartmouth. I know some of the Big Green's coaching staff. Cool to see a piece of history like that.

Wow, love the variety of the Thorpe cards. The Exhibit cards and the Olympics Heroes postcard have been on my want list for a while now, but none of them pop up too often.

Hi Jeff,
Love the display. I always liked the Grange Yeast Foam ad that also came from dug stores (where he is punting the football)! Two questions. What is the large die-cut piece with the guy passing the ball (middle of the display cabinet-very cool) & where is your Red Grange model Football (it would be a great companion piece with the box)?

Die-cut piece is a Catalina Sweater advertising piece of Jay Berwanger (first Heisman winner). There are other college players who have similar Catalina advertisement pieces like this. MSB Sportscards has a few of them on their web site if anyone is interested in getting one. They are really hard to find.

I haven't put the football in this display yet. I'm actually planning to redo it as a Grange only display and will include it then.
