Look for the image of the Royal Engineers AFC from 1872. Try history of British Football on wiki.

Those stocking caps don't look at all like the ones in my photo.

I think the image is a rugby team.
If you compare your photo with this British late-19th century Keens Mustard tin with Rugby scene... the uniforms look very similar, including the toques.

I hope this helps.

That was my first impression on this also except for the fact that the ball is on the floor and it looks like a football (soccer ball) and not a rugby football. The first ones to use a rubber bladder, made by Richard Lindon in the 1840's, were slightly oblong (buttonball).

Same thoughts here. I will post a close-up of the ball later - it appears to be round, but I will be interested to hear your opinions.

Thanks Brent and Michael. This is out of my sports wheelhouse, as I generally only collect baseball (anything old) or football action.

Picked up these programs in the Huggins & Scott auction. These are from the independent league team the Cranston Firesafes. Yogi Berra played there under a pseudonym "Casuno" while stationed in the northeast during WWII.

A few of my recent pickups. The Rent a Seat Cushion sign is from Cleveland Municipal Stadium.

I just added this 1971 Clemente pinback to my 71 Bucs collection. It is a very scare item and one of three I have ever seen in 40+ years of collecting. It has been a bit of a white whale for me. Although I'm certain I over paid, I'm thrilled to have finally landed it
