1912 University of Kansas Cabinet Photograph. A perennial basketball powerhouse, the University of Kansas Jayhawks are also one of the oldest and most successful basketball programs in America, dating back to the turn of the twentieth century when the game was founded. In fact the Jayhawks first coach, Dr. James Naismith, was the inventor of the game itself.

    Rare, early basketball cabinet photograph depicts eleven members of the 1912 Jayhawks team, including head coach William O. Hamilton and the trainer. The players pose with team sweaters, knee pads, wool leggings, early hardwood kicks, and "1912" inscribed ball. Original brown backing features the names of the entire team penned in vintage black fountain pen. Spectacular.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $800 - up.
