Default Just purchased 110 year old football photo ++

I am a sucker for vintage football and recent ebay sales lead me to the purchase of these two new prized possesions. This one is 110 years old



And the other one is smaller but of a captain of Lafayette


Found these on craigslist from a antique dealer who was consigning them for a guy who just so happened to go to the shop. He did not have a lot of knowledge of the 110 year old photo but when I went to a framer today the owners eyes lit up as if he had seen a ghost and he authenticated it. It is amazing how well preserved this item is

Very nice. So crazy to see that these guys were football players. They all look like they would get killed with the size of today's players

I think it was harder for them to play back then from what I have read upon I am really not sure who would be the last man standing. haha

Haha thanks I waited an hour for this guy to open I had a women who had a shop next door finally let me in and he still took 25 extra minutes but to me it was worth the wait. I hate ANTIQUE shops only there I wait hour plus time periods.
