Tough to keep up with Larry, great pick-ups! Really like the Ditka

Here's a Washington State Normal School Football Program between WWU("B") and CWU ("E"). It was the dedication game of Bellingham's Waldo Field, November 16, 1923.

The players pictured are team captains Richard Bruland (WWU) and Gerald Brunson (CWU). Not much to report on these two, Brunson was killed in a workplace accident as an electrician in 1926.

The cover and back of the program are such heavy bond paper that it almost feels like the leather of a football. It's a very odd program. The 12,000 fans that reportedly went to this game, would be more than years of attendance for either of these colleges. If I found another pre-Depression era program from CWU I'd be amazed.

The card posted by SilverBall67 and the program posted by Ty really do show the odd shape of the old footballs. Does this style of ball have a name? I can't imagine throwing that thing!

One eBay purchase arrived today. 1952 Bowman large #39 Emlen Tunnell. Of course I enjoy putting these sets together, but I know nothing about the players pictured including Emlen until I read about him on the internet. Card "books" for $125 in NM shape and I won this one for $13.33 delivered.
1. First African American to play for the NY Giants (1948)
2. Pro Football HOF 1967 the first African American inducted
3. Suffered a broken neck playing in college, so severe that he was rejected by both the Army and Navy during WWII (he did serve in the Coast Guard)
4. Undrafted out of college, he hitchhiked to New York to ask for a try out.
5. Died of a heart attack in 1975 on the football field while acting as an assistant coach with the Giants.

John I tried to watch that video but after viewing the commercial it said the video wasn't available. Do I have to be a member of NFL.com?

I don't have an NFL Videos account. Try to enter from a Google search rather than my link. You can search: "Emlen Tunnell Films Encore". There's a really similar short on my NFL Top 100 DVD - they did a nice job considering its only about 3 minutes or so.

couple of additions to my '57 set.. other than a few rookies in '57..I believe the '72 set is going to be tougher to put together as far as cost.. and a lot of people seem to be jumping all over these auctions.

I finally figured out how to shrink these images...
