Early Football Equipment, Sweaters, and Jerseys



Very Rare 1916 Patent Date Spalding Brand Reeded Football Shoulder Pads.  These reeded style pads rarely ever show up in the hobby, and likely weren't a popular seller.  They show up in Spalding catalogs in 1923, through the 1920's.  Catalogs detail these pads as model 23, and describe the reeded padding as "hollow protecting strips to permit flexibility."  These pads features some leather loss on one side, and missing area of felt on the underside as well.  Despite these flaws, these rare pads would make an outstanding addition to any early football collection.

Early 1920's Army - West Point Football Heavy Wool Football Letterman's Sweater.  This sweater hails from the estate of Army Football Player Walter White, who was in the Class of 1923 at West Point.  This is a heavy wool sweater with a large gray A on it, with a yellow start beneath.  There are no makers tagging present in the jersey, nor are there any size markings, but this is a larger size sweater.  The sweater has a shoulder to hem measurement of 28 inches, as armpit to armpit measurement of 22.5 inches, and a sleeve length of 20.5 inches.  The sweater is in excellent condition with no rips or stains.  I show a portion of a 1923 Army Navy football game program above to show the same style of sweater being worn.  This phenomenal sweater would be a great addition to either a football or militaria collection.

Circa 1946 to 1952 Philadelphia Eagles Vic Sears Game Worn Football Jersey.  Vic Sears was a dominant 2 way player for the Eagles, playing both offensive and defensive tackle, and was a member of both the 1948 and 1949 Philadelphia Eagles Championship teams.  Sears was named as a member of the 1940's All Decade team by the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  The jersey features both Mitchell & Ness and Macgregor Goldsmith tagging on the inside of the crotch strap.  This jersey was originally sold by Hunt Auctions, and was part of a group of Eagles jerseys discovered in the belongings of a Philadelphia area boys' club manager, as the jerseys were handed down to the boys club team by the Eagles.  The jersey is a white durene jersey with sewn on green numerals.  The jersey would have had two green stripes when used by the Eagles, but these were trimmed off at some point.  The jersey does exhibit a good amount of use with heavy team repairs present, and some tearing.  Early NFL game used jerseys are very hard to find, and this is a great example from a key member of the Philadelphia Eagles 1948 and 1949 championship teams.

Circa 1922 to 1924 Pottsville Maroons Star Barney Wentz's Penn State Game Worn Football Sweater Photomatched in Accompanying Oversized Framed Photograph of Wentz shown wearing the same sweater.  This amazing pairing originated from the Barney Wentz estate.  This heavy wool sweater is very well made, and is composed of navy blue wool, with a white Penn State S on the chest.  The sweater also has a sewn in Brine tag in the tail area.  The large photograph of Wentz is housed in its original frame measuring 20.75 inches tall by 11.75 inches wide, and shows Wentz in the offered sweater.  The photo has fantastic clarity, showing the detail of his early style football pants, and square leather studded cleats.  Although tough to capture with my photography (the details are much easier to see in person), specific details of the sweater and photograph match perfectly.  Just to the left of the upper tail of the S is a single white wool stitch that lies away from the rest of the white wool.  This small area can be seen matching in the photograph and sweater.  Another matching detail occurs at the inside of the bottom loop of the S (at about 4 o'clock).  At this spot, the white wool has a raised, possibly reinforced area of stitching, and this raised area can also be seen in the photograph.  Barney Wentz played with Penn State in the early 1920's, leading them to a Rose Bowl victory in 1923.  After his time at Penn State, he played professionally in the NFL with the Pottsville Maroons, where he starred as a ball carrier.  He actually led the Maroons with 10 Touchdowns during their 1926, and scored 2 Touchdowns in their 1925 Title Game against the Chicago Cardinals (a Championship that was later stripped).  A superb football sweater from an early College and Professional football star.
Sold.


Circa 1900 Full Football Uniform Including Turtleneck Sweater and Reeded and Quilted Football Pants.  This attractive early football ensemble was discovered in the Carlisle, Pennsylvania area, and could possibly have been donned by a Carlisle Indian School gridiron combatant.  The turtleneck sweater is composed of black wool, with brown striping.  The sweater has had custom homemade internal shoulder pads constructed internally (consisting of socks it appears).  The pants feature quilted padding in the hip and knee areas, with reeded padding atop the thigh areas.  The pants also feature a homemade padding in the top back of the pants featuring what appears to be a 19th century afghan sewn into the interior of the pants.  The two homemade padding additions really accentuate the brutality of the early days of football.  There are no maker's tags on either portion of the uniform.  A very attractive turn of the century football uniform.

Rare 1905 Wilcox Removable Mouthpiece Style Penna Guard Brand Football Nose Mask Noseguard.  This rare style noseguard, features the removable mouthpiece, which freely moves within this noseguard.  This innovation was patented in 1905, and started to be used in the Penna Guard nosemask that same year, followed by being incorporated into Morrill brand noseguards the following year in 1906.  This noseguard is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or engraving, and retains its original elastic strap.  The strap on this nosemask also features a button snap closure at the middle of its length.  The nosemask has the 1905 patent date on its front bottom, and has Penna Guard on its forehead area.  The Penna Guard version of this nosemask is much more difficult to find than its Morrill counterpart, and this is a fabulous example

Coburn.  The "H Book of Harvard Athletics" lists a Philip Fairbairn Coburn as a member of the 1921 Football team, and a member of the 1923 Harvard class.  The Coburn tag is partially detached but still hanging on and thankfully it has survived.  A great early relic of Harvard football history.

Beautiful Circa 1920's Spalding Brand Orange and Black Football Jersey.  This jersey features an attractive gothic style P on its chest with black and orange striping down each sleeve.  The jersey has a Spalding tag in its tail, that dates the jersey from the 1914 to Late 1920's time period.  The number 28 decorates the back of the jersey and there are reinforced areas on each elbow.  The jersey is in very strong condition, with bright colors, but does have the occasional period repair or mild tear.  The team represented by the P will likely remain a mystery; I cannot find images of Princeton wearing this style of gothic P during the jersey's time frame.  The professional football team of Youngstown Ohio, the Youngstown Patricians, were known to wear jersey's with similar gothic P decoration, but I believe the wore a different color combination.  The jersey has the following measurements: Arm Pit to Arm Pit measurement of 18.5 inches, a Shoulder to Hem measurement of 29 inches, and a Sleeve measurement of 23 inches.  This is a just a fantastic looking early Spalding football jersey.

Beautiful Seemingly Unworn or Very Lightly Worn Pair of Circa 1900 Quilted Football Pants.  These pants feature a heavily quilted front side.  The pants have the name B. Scully written on the inside, and my guess is Scully didn't see much if any game action.  The pants retain all of their buttons and are a fantastic pair of early football pants.
