Description

Among the oldest rivalries in American sports, the 19th of 141 head-to-head meetings between the Yale and Princeton football teams is the subject of this 1893 Stereoview keepsake. Mounted to a thick stock backing of 7 x 3-1/2”, duplicate original sepia-toned photographs capture the Thanksgiving Day scene at New York City’s Polo Grounds. Princeton defeated the Bulldogs, 6-0 that afternoon to snap Yale’s 36-game winning streak and secure the collegiate championship. Crafted by Strohmeyer & Wyman for viewing on a Stereoscope device, the vintage gridiron heirloom presents beautifully!
