Description

During this stretch of time (bookended by their 1899 and 1910 national championships), the Crimson were led on the gridiron by the likes of College Football Hall of Famers Charles Dudley Daly, Hamilton Fish and Bob Fisher. Includes: 1) 1902 "Three Times Three for Harvard" (VG; game action photo). 2) 1904 "Harvard Foot Ball Song" (GD w/separated covers). 3) 1902 "Advance of Harvard" (VG; 1901 championship team photo). 4) 1904 "The Crimson" (GD). 5) 1909 "Harvardiana" (GD w/separated covers).

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!
