Default Football Programs

Anybody collect football programs? I don't have a bunch but do have some with historical significance.

One of the oldest football programs in existance.


From Grange's famous barnstorming tour he did with the Bears


The date makes this one interesting ...


Browns' first game in the NFL. Defending AAFC Champs vs. defending NFL Champs! Browns won 35-10. Guess the AAFC was pretty decent, huh.


Post your favorite programs here.

I have some that are more historical, but none more whimsical than the Los Angeles Mustangs

Those are all so great. There are many times that I wish I lived earlier in the 1900s.

I only collect CWU football programs. Not many pre-War programs available, but here's one of them. Strange game between Pacific Lutheran and CWU at a neutral site (Parker Field in Yakima, home of the 1941 Yakima Pippins). Regional historical significance: the first integrated Central Washington football team (James Murphy, and Greg Middleton).

Jeff: It appears more than one Pro game was played that day. The attack on Pearl Harbor began at 8AM (?) right around the start time for games on the East Coast 1PM (?) A quick Google search brought up a partial radio broadcast with a mid game announcement of the on going air strike.

The date makes this one interesting ...

Yes, full slate of NFL games that day. Not sure when other games started, but the NY Giants game was at 2:05

I love the old programs! Jeff- I have the Leeman's and the 1950 Eagles-Browns editions.

I received a 1955 TCU at Arkansas program yesterday in the mail which was great fun to look through during last night's game. That put me at 351 on University of Arkansas programs and I equally enjoy the Arkansas small colleges programs. I have well over 500 of those. There is something about a game program or an old media guide that feels special. I love cards but these publications were actually there at the moment!

As an old SID I get a kick out these. I collect college football guides for all schools, the drawback is space!!!!

Here's a photo from the Bears-Cardinals game on 12.7.1941.

Dan- I have a 1931 College of the Ozarks at Arkansas and have 17 others from the 1930's. I have a great friend in Little Rock who has a 1912 Arkansas at Washington (St. Louis) shaped like a football and a hand full of one-sheet programs from the 1918-30 period.

The programs from schools that were small like Arkansas during the pre-1940 era are fairly scarce opposed to programs from some of the larger schools around the country. Attendance at Arkansas games rarely exceeded 10,000 in that early period and was much less pre-30.

The strength and popularity of the Ivy League schools is apparent in the amount of programs from the pre-40 period that are available on eBay. Same goes for the the larger west coast schools and what was then the Big Nine.

I seldom see any pre-40 much less pre-30 programs from the southern schools, even the current SEC members. One of my prized programs is a 1929 Henderson State at Centenary in Shreveport with Cal Hubbard playing for the Gents. I love finding the programs from not only Arkansas but the smaller schools around the state like Henderson and Ouachita Baptist. I was SID at Henderson for many years and a played a year at Arkansas Tech, well didn't really play but was on the team!
