Cornell v. Penn Football Program 1939. 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. Nice black and white pictures of each team and individual players. Full of nice vintage advertisements including a real beauty for Auburn automobiles and the brand new Empire State Building in New York. 68 pages, in very good condition. The nice cover illustration of an Art Deco woman and a football player done by longtime Penn illustrator Robert Foster. Full of articles and history of Penn football and the Cornell-Penn rivalry.
