Tributes to the 1898 Conference Champion Wolverines (led by All-American halfback Charles Widman and center William Cunningham) and 1904 National Champion Wolverines (piloted by Fielding Yost). Includes: 1898 "The Victors" (GD/VG w/half-separation of spine; team cover photo). 2) 1904 Sousa's Band "Men of Yost" (PR, missing back cover).

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!
