Auction Date:6/15/2012 9:00 PM EST
Here are some great gridiron games and collectibles any collector would embrace. Comprising the lot is 1) an Intercollegiate Foot-Ball Game by the Hustler Toy Company of Sterling, Ill. Dating from the 1920s, it is litho on metal and wood, featuring a playing field, two score dials and a football-shaped downs dial, slot revealing play calls and complete rules on the back. The game is in excellent condition for its age with working spinners and very little rust. 2) a "Play Football" punch board with 100 push-in circles made by Harlich Mfg. Co. of Chicago. This item is unused and in virtually mint condition on a stiff card stock that measures approx. 7.5x10" 3) D&M Athletic Goods Fall and Winter 1932-33 catalog filled with terrific illustrations. The 66-page booklet is in EX condition considering its age and features the following writing on the front: "Hobart M. Sisson - Collinsville, Connecticut." 4) 3-D Advertising display sign for Fort Pitt Beer - a Western, Pennsylvania brewery founded in 1803. Measuring 15x12", the stand-up sign with movable background has some tearing, especially on the corners. 5) Thin cloth "Home Coming" banner with cartoon football player. Showing some fraying and some folds, the banner measures 23x35.5" and does not indicate a particular team 6) Painted metal toy (or perhaps a door-stopper) in the form of a football kicker. His right leg bends above a slot which probably held a ball in place at some point.
