It's football, but too nice not to share
 
Posted By: <b>jamie</b><p>This piece closed on Ebay today. I thought it was one of the nicest cabinets I've ever seen:<br /><img src="http://stats.knightsbridge1.com/1908ku1.jpg">

Posted By: <b>John S</b><p>Very interesting piece. 1905 - 1910? Were you the lucky high bidder?

Posted By: <b>davidcycleback</b><p>Grade A for a non-famous player. The little flag at the bottom just adds to it.

Posted By: <b>Keith</b><p>I was also a bidder, but got a little too high for me. I saw a very similar cabinet in a recent hunts internet auction. Could have been the identical one. I think that one was also a kansas cabinet

Posted By: <b>davidcycleback</b><p>I'd say the price was a good deal, in particular as the player's name <br />and year was written on back.<br /><br />For collectors, there's a lot of nice vintage football photos out there,<br />including college stuff and photos of folks like Red Grange and Bronco Nagurski.<br />Unlike baseball, college football was big time in the old days and many modern <br />collectors specialize in their favorite college team. If you have a early 1900s<br />cabinet of a Notre Dame, U of Michigan or Alamaba player in uniform, there will <br />be lots of interest in it. <br /><br />Though the top football photos don't get near prices of top baseball photos (ala<br />Babe Ruth rookie, King Kelly Cabinet), there is a healthy amount of football<br />photo collectors.

Posted By: <b>Rhys</b><p>To echo what has already been mentioned. A really rare 1892 cabinet photo of the first ever professional Football player, Pudge Heffelfinger, autographed on the back ended a few months ago on ebay. A similar item of rarity and historical significance in the baseball world would fetch easily 20K. Hammer price on that item was not even $1000. I kept scans of it for my records but will probably be kicking myself for years that I did not purchase it.
