Cornell v. Penn Football Program 1938 in very good condition. 68 page program measures 9 inches x 12 inches. 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 1964 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 beautiful cover illustration was done by Penn's longtime illustrator Robert Foster.
The program includes individual black and white pictures of players from both teams and about a dozen articles about Cornell and the University of Pennsylvania. There are also black and white action shots of prior games, including many from the 1920s featuring leatherhead style uniforms and a classic picture from 1898 of a game played in a blizzard. The program includes Frank Reagan who played for Penn from 1938 to 1940 and was known as the "Flying Irishman". Reagan would go on to play for both the Philadelphia Eagles and the NY Giants.
