Ivy League gridironers battle for supremacy with this colorful 1897 Pennsylvania vs. Harvard Football newspaper supplement. Dated 11/21/1897, this colorful ephemeron was distributed with Sunday copies of the Philadelphia Press newspaper. Measures 16-1/2 x 10-1/2" and appears to be affixed to the matting. Framed to overall dimensions of 23 x 16-1/2" in a vintage frame. Although the illustrations display moderate tearing and wrinkling, the imagery is still captivating. The Quakers won the 1897 contest en route to an undefeated season.
