Description



Football fans tackle this formidable treasure chest collection of vintage NFL, AFL, AAFC and NCAA publications. Dating from 1925-1999, this big bundle of (128) assorted magazines, guides and miscellaneous items is captained by groups of Street and Smith's Yearbook, Football Illustrated Annual and Spalding's Official Guide. Rounding out the team is a considerable variety of magazines, several other guide types and a handful of odd items. In general this significant group boasts favorable condition quality, though as can be expected some of the earliest items show considerable wear. Cover photos include a good number of all-time greats, such as Johnny Unitas, Bart Starr, Vince Lombardi, Joe Namath, Jim Brown, Walter Payton and other gridiron legends.
