1874 Yale (vs. Columbia) Football Program

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $4,444

Fold-over program issued for a collegiate football game between Columbia and Yale on December 5, 1874, at Hamilton Park. This is an extremely early football program and we have only seen a few others that predate it (two appear elsewhere in this auction). The interior section lists the rosters for each club, while the reverse provides a score sheet to record the goals. A small blue ribbon is attached to the front cover (appears to be as issued). The program (3 x 4.5 inches) has been neatly scored on the reverse to record six goals for Yale and one for Columbia. In Excellent to Mint condition. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $4,444
