Posted By: <b>John S</b><p>Definitely one of my favorite types of vintage football collectibles. The example below is a complete program (two pages shown) with a great shot of Nevers in an Eskimos uniform.<br /><br /><br /><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1200691145.JPG"> <img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1200691167.JPG">

Posted By: <b>Michael Moran</b><p>Here's one I'm really happy to have - I think Jack McBride deserves more recognition as a pioneer in early football - QB of the first Giants team in 1925 and of the first Giants championship team in 1927 - I have a number of older programs on my website <a href="http://pages.prodigy.net/revmoran/index.html" target="_new" rel="nofollow">http://pages.prodigy.net/revmoran/index.html</a><br /><br /><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1200697113.JPG">

Posted By: <b>John S</b><p>Mike,<br /><br />Where did you get the scan of the program above? I will keep my eyes open for any of your father's material.

Posted By: <b>Michael Moran</b><p>I believe I got that from the Hall of Fame in Canton - I have not run into anyone who has a copy. My father was also on a program cover on Nov. 22, 1931 when Green Bay came to play at the Polo Grounds - that took about six years to find and the owner, who has a sports bar near Green Bay, wouldn't sell it - I was able to buy a copy of the Green Bay at the Giants from 1929 with Friedman on the cover and make a trade for the program with my father.

Posted By: <b>Matt M</b><p>Mike, <br />Since I am from Canton, where exactly did you get the program? I don't remember the Hall of Fame selling items like this....<br /><br /><br />Matt

Posted By: <b>Michael Moran</b><p>Years ago I contacted the archivist at the Hall of Frame to see what pictures of my father were in their files and they sent me some scans and I paid for some copies - but later I believe the HOF stopped doing that and now you have to go through NFL Properties for copies of photographs. However, I think if you go to the HOF library you might find they will make copies of material for you there.
