Rev,

I think Carter is labeled as "Reynolds" in the 1886 photo you posted (from Cohane's book). In my altered photo I think Carter is sitting down in front of Corbin. Both team photos were taken the same day.

Camp's Yale Her Campus, Classrooms and Athletics also lists an S. B. Morison '90 as a Y man in football in 1886. Yale Football Y Men also identifies a letterman named George Grant Mason - don't know who Monson is in Cohane's photo - neither the Camp book nor the Yale Football Y Men have that name. Maybe our mystery man is Morison or Mason.

Rev,

You could be on to something. I don't have individual photos of either those guys to compare. I have a yearbook with the 1890 football team, which has the Morison brothers. SB has a mustache in it though. I'll try to post a scan of it later today.

Hey Guys,

Picked up a fantastic 1889 Yale Pach Bros album from a member of this forum (thanks Mike). These photos are from the Sheffield Scientific School and are a great compliment to the Yale College album.

William Charles Wurtenburg '89S (quarterback photo and senior portrait)



Charles Otis Gill '89 and Frederick William Wallace '89


Amos Alonzo Stagg '88


Cheers

Mark

For those who collect 1894 Mayo Football Cards and/or interested in the Yale Skull & Bones, you may get a kick out of an item from our Hinkey Archive recently posted on www.frankhinkey.com. Check it out!

Below is a direct link to our Vault page.

Cheers

Rev,

I've attached senior pics of William Graves and Samuel Morison. I don't think our mystery guy is either. I'm going to the Yale Archives later this summer to solve our mystery.

Full disclosure: These photos are not from my collection. They come from a beautiful 1891 Skull & Bones album available for purchase on Abebooks.com. Price is a bit steep though ($6500).

Cheers

Mark

Posted this in a Wheaties thread on the main forum but it got no love from the baseball guys. Recently turned over the items in my display case and made it all about vintage Wheaties football.

Check it out and let me know what you think.

That's a great display and some of those are really tough.

Thanks for checking my display out, Jason.

Yep, some of the Wheaties panels are really tough. I'm still missing a few that I've been searching for for almost a decade now.

Also trying to upgrade them all to full box backs that include the Wheaties tab at the bottom. That's pretty challenging too!

Beautiful collection Jeff! Those Wheaties cards are super tough. I really like the way you have them displayed too. What do you think about draping some black or brown felt over the cardboard boxes in back?

Curious...What is the football of on top?

Mark
