Cornell v. Penn Football Program 1907. 62 page program, 9 1/4 inches x 12 inches, in good condition, some minor discoloration to top left of front cover and the lower right corner of the program has minor paper loss throughout, although neither detracts from the overall presentation of this 100+ year old program. The program contains a full review of Penn's Athletic year 1906-1907 and contains black and white photographs of prior football games and the Penn football team of 1907 as well as photos of the Penn track, baseball and basketball teams. Contains pictures of players from Cornell's football team and pictures of both campuses. The program contains many vintage period advertisements. The scorecards inside the program are clean and unmarked. Page 59 of the program contains a real rarity: a panoramic fold-out view of Franklin Field at Penn and folds out to 20 inches. Cornell v. Penn is the fifth oldest rivalry in football, with their first game played in 1893. This game was played on Thanksgiving Day, as was the tradition. They played the game in Philadelphia 68 consecutive times. Since the 1970s game have been held at both Ithaca and Philadelphia. Their first game was in 1893 and have played every year since, except in 1918. Since 1995, the winner of the Cornell-Penn football game has been awarded the Trustees' Cup. The inside cover page of the program contains a rare (for the time) color illustration done by Lucille A. Dutton which shows female Penn and Cornell fans riding in a carriage on their way to the game (see image). An absolutely spectacular and rare program.
