Turn-of-the-century sheet music from the gridiron doesn't surface often on the auction block. This classic duo includes: 1) 1898 "Varsity Football March" (VG-EX w/light cover foxing). 2) 1901 "The College Two-Step" (VG-EX w/separation at top and bottom of spine).

We're proud to present what is easily the largest vintage sheet music collection that we've come across. It consists of rare baseball songs and even rarer football examples—a good number of which showcase that most desirable feature of vintage sheet music: photographic player/team portraits. The collection measures the standard full-size dimensions of approximately 10x14 or thereabouts. Due to the nature of their delicate paper medium, many of the offerings have received strict technical grades yet actually display nicer. There are also some cover notations or inscriptions from past owners as is often the case. Now let's strike up the band!
