Cornell v. Penn Football Program 1925 in good condition, some small paper loss on pages 76-80, not impact the overall presentation or attractiveness of the program. 80 pages, measures 8 1/4 x 10 1/2 inches. Fabulous Art Deco cover illustration of a Penn fan by Robert Foster.
This game was played on Thanksgiving Day at Franklin Field, as was the tradition, as the weather at Cornell was not as predictable. Cornell and Penn have played the game in Philadelphia 68 consecutive times. Since the 1970s games have been held at both Ithaca and Philadelphia. Penn's rivalry with Cornell is the fifth most played college football rivalry of all time. Their first game was in 1893 and they 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 covers are printed in a heavier card-stock that the rest of the program. Great ads for Stetson Hats, Penndashery, New Marmon Automobiles and many others. The middle of the program contains a sixteen page "Pictorial Section" of photographs of players from both teams and Cornell's various other sport teams. The center fold is a panoramic view of the "Crescent", Cornell's new stadium.
A spectacular program.
