Great stuff! Really like the Jim Brown and Steve Owen collections. Thanks for sharing.

I was very fortunate to acquire the estates of Frank Hinkey's (Yale 4x All-American End from 1891-94) wife and nephew. I created an online virtual museum to display these wonderful football artifacts, which I try to update at least monthly throughout the year. The vast majority of this memorabilia has never been seen before. All of it will be donated to Phillips Andover in the future. Take a look when time permits.

Cheers!

Mark, that's great - this is turning into one of the best threads ever. So, Hinkey coaching Dayton wasn't like NFL teams hiring coaches, today? He just happened to live there and know the coach?

John,

Thanks for taking a look. Frank Hinkey helped coach the 1921 Dayton Triangles by the request of the head coach, Nelson "Bud" Talbott. Talbott helped organize the Dayton Triangles in 1916. Hinkey was the head football coach for Yale from 1914-15. His captain for the 1914 season was.....Bud Talbott. They remained close friends throughout the years. I have a fantastic letter from Bud Talbott sending his condolences to Frank's wife after his death in 1925. I'll post it on the website next month.

Mark

When I saw Mark had posted in this thread I thought "My God I hope he's showing his Frank Hinkey stuff". My prayers have been answered!

Thanks Mark!

Just add more stuff, Mark ;-)

Here are a few more Frank Hinkey items. He's my favorite 1800s player.

New York Recorder Supplement - doing an article for Gridiron Greats on these.

Jeff,

Those Hinkey photos are great. The 1894 Mayo card is beautiful! I was unaware he was your favorite player from the 1800s. Most prefer Walter Camp or Pudge Heffelfinger. I'm glad I am not the only one.

Always a treat to see pieces of your collection.

Mark

Camp is obviously an icon and Heff was the first documented professional but neither of them are a 4x All-American ;-)

It was a hard decision to sell off most of my 19th Century material but the one player I kept was Harry Beecher, so I guess he is my favorite. I don't have a real player collection but I do have a Beecher family collection - first the football stuff





Now to his great-Aunt - a signed photo



And a first edition



And I don't have a scan for this, but I do have an autograph and a cabinet for his grandfather
