Past/Present: Football

Today we have a new P/P post, featuring two prints of football. With every fall season comes the beginning of a new football season, as each team, professional or collegiate, rests their hopes of a winning season on new players and reinvented plays and strategies.  Here, we relive the old days of football through prints, when collegiate teams and young American leagues were still augmenting their rules and style of play.
