Cornell v. Penn Football Program 1932. Thanksgiving day. Fabulous art deco cover by H. Alonzo Keller. 9 inches x 12 inches. 64 page program, mild soiling to cover, overall in very good condition. Nice vintage ads including one from Sears advertising tubes for readers radios! Black and white pictures of players from both teams and campuses and an article written by John Heisman. 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 center of the program contains a 15 page pictorial section chocked with photographs. A real art deco beauty!
