A few other miscellaneous items from the '30s.

In 1937, Donut Corp put out a series that I believe was on the side or bottom of their Donut boxes. It has famous athletes including two football players: Red Grange and Knute Rockne:


Donut Corp. Thrilling Moments Series - Red Grange

Also in 1937, Dixie Cup put out a series of dixie cup ice cream lids with sports figures on them. Two are football players: Bronko Nagurski and Sammy Baugh. There are also premiums of these players that you could acquire and put in an album.

The back has a letter to pro football fans:
