1898-1940 Spalding Football Guide Collection (43)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,185

Complete run of the Spalding Official Football Guide spanning the years 1898 through 1940. The issues for the years 1899, 1900, and 1901 have been bound together with hard covers, as have the issues for 1902-1904, 1905-1907, and 1908-1910, respectively. Additionally, each volume for the years 1935, 1936, 1937, 1938, 1939, and 1940 has been individually bound in hard covers. As is common with guides from this era, condition is less than perfect, but all of the examples offered here have maintained their integrity. Good condition overall. This is a rare run of Spalding football guides and one that represents an invaluable primary reference source chronicling the earliest years of organized football. Total: 43 guides. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,185
