This matte-finish portrait does as good a job as any photo we've seen at documenting 19th-century gridiron regalia. The leather uniform of lace-up vests/smocks and reeded pants—plus the hardy high-top cleats and heavy wool varsity sweaters—are on full glorious display as if in a fashion shoot. Fallen leaves and a stone wall further add to the piece's vintage collegiate charm. Boasting a crystal-clear, high-quality image, the 7 x 9-1/2" photo rates EX-MT with a vertical line of toning to the right of center. Accompanied by a piece of the original studio mount with a "Colgate University" imprint and penciled "Stone's Studio" notation.
