Posted By: <b>Keith</b><p>I posted this on the memoribilia side but figured I would give it a post here too.<br />I picked this up yesterday at an estate auction, and just am not exactly sure what it is. It reminds me of the Christy turn of the century postcards, but this one is a lot larger than a postcard. It measures 10 inches by 7 inches, and is on a slightly thicker stock paper than a postcard would be. It pictures some University of Pennsylvania fans, a football shaped photo of a Penn game in progress, and a small photo of College Hall on Penn's Campus. Anyone see one of these before - whether a Penn one or a different school<br /><br /><br /><img src="http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n193/kjjavic/PennGirl.jpg"><br /><img src="http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n193/kjjavic/PennGirlclosup.jpg">

Posted By: <b>John S</b><p>Nice item Keith...I have never seen one. One can only imagine what its function (if any) was. From your description it sounds more like a cabinet card. The UPenn uniforms are cool, just like the Bednarik phot on the '48 and '49 Leaf issues.
