Antique Football Equipment

1891 Football Nose guard - Very Scarce 1st Generation

ITEM 1: Here we are offering an 1891 First Generation Football Nose guard, this was the very first style of nose guard  The original, three air hole version was the original design created and patented by John F. Morrill on September 29, 1891.    The inability to take in enough air through only three air holes was quickly improved upon with the addition of six more air holes making the original three hole design obsolete and a very scarce item to find.  The example offered here is exceptional not only in its rarity but also condition.  Found with the original head strap still in place, clean and unflawed surfaces and bold markings inside and out… this example is a gem.  The markings read: “PAT’D SEPT 29 1891” on the front and on the inside  “JOHN F MORILL BOSTON." An exceptional item for all vintage football collections. SOLD

Antique Football Shoes made by Spalding

ITEM 2: Here we are offering a great pair of early 1900’s Football Shoes with Stacked Leather Cleats. Made by the A.G. Spalding & Bros.

These cleats were created by stacking leather pieces that are gradually smaller than the last, on top of each other to create the actual cleat. Prior to this innovation the football shoe had no cleats. The vintage stacked leather football cleats are very popular among antique football collectors. Perhaps because they just look tough and rugged to match the personality of gridiron men from this era. This particular pair is of the highest quality and has an ideal vintage look. The condition is solid EX-MT and they will look awesome in your antique football collection! Price $375
