This trio of 8-1/2 x 11" pages portray plays that were used by the 1916 Detroit Heralds. Written on official team letterhead with "Champions 1914-15" in the top left corner in black fountain pen, the plays seem to be short "red zone" plays including various types of sweeps, direct snaps and flats that aim for the corners of the end zone. Solid content for fans of the "Xs and Os". According to our consignor, this once belonged to former NFLer Hugh Blacklock, who graduated from technical college in Michigan in 1916 and was perhaps hanging out around the team.
