I puzzled over this one, as it does not say WHAT Newport Football High School team this is. I doubt greatly it's Rhode Island. In fact, given the barn in the background, and the fact that it came from an Ohio collection I would bet on Newport, Ohio. Check out the two guys with the Mohawks! Anyway, it's an interesting picture with a small crease to the lower left corner and spots of isolated edge wear. It was never sent in the mail and there is no message. It's printed o...

This is a rather localized item (Cleveland, Ohio area), but of interest to people who show horses, or have family members who did at one time. It's all marked up inside -- which is a GOOD thing in this instance -- as it provides the ranking of the winners in each race. It also includes a horse show prize list as a separate tri-fold brochure .Both items are very clean and the graphic on the cover of the main program is wonderful.Program measures 6-1/4"x9-1/4" and has 40 p...

This card is fabulous! There's no date on it because it's unused, but I grew up in Akron, Ohio and I know I was at this parade when I was a kid because we never missed it. I know it's from the 60's too because that's when Chevrolet sponsored the Soap Box Derby and that was when the Derby was a REALLY BIG DEAL. The parade was heading up Main Street with the truck positioned between the two department stores, Polsky's and O'Neil's, which were right across the street from e... View more info

These items came together so I am leaving them together, as both are mementos of the last Cleveland Indians baseball season to be held at the old Cleveland Stadium. The magazine measures 8-1/2"x11" and still retains its unused scorecards for the final series at Cleveland Stadium. It's a glossy magazine with lots of photos and Cleveland baseball history.

Great graphic on this vintage Rose Bowl parade program dated January 1, 1951.

There is a bit damage to this one, but I bought it anyway because the article about Japanese silk is fantastic! I'll get to that soon, but first you need to know that the upper corner of the last couple pages and the back cover corner were all creased up. I have been able to smooth it all out (see photos)-- we're talking just a couple pages at the back. One required archival tape before the corner fell off and one has a small loss of a corner. The cover just shows severa... View more info

Oversized magazine with a wonderful cover graphic. It measures 10"x 13-1/4 and has 33 pages. The back shows a mailing label discreetly placed in the area designed for it and there is also a bit of edge wear to the spine area, none of which impinges of the integrity of the binding.
