Turn of the Century Melon Style Football

ITEM 1: This is a great example of a Turn of the Century Melon Style Football. This fine vintage football was made by the A. J. Reach Sporting Goods Company from Philadelphia, PA.

This is a pre-airhole style ball where the bladder was inserted, inflated, and then, the leather laces were put in place. A great example from the early days on the gridiron. Perfect for display in your 19th century football collection. Condition is solid VG-EX. SOLD

vintage-football-nose-guard.jpg
ITEM 3: Offered here is an outstanding representation of a Vintage 1910’s Football Jersey with Leather Elbow Pads. These sweater-style football jerseys are extremely difficult to find. Likely because they were worn hard and any that were not shredded on the gridiron were worn out with general use... a sweater was not easily discarded back in these days. This fine example was made from 100% pure wool in Colon, Michigan. A superb antique football jersey that is worthy of any vintage football collection! Price $450

ITEM 5: Here we have one of the more unusual offerings. It is a Pre-1910’s Melon Style Football Bladder. This vintage melon style football bladder is made of rubber and has never been used.

The bladder was used by inserting it into the football, inflating it, and then tying it off so the air would not leak out. Then the football was laced up with rawhide leather laces and it was ready to go! A very unusual and novel vintage football collectible! SOLD
