    Description

    Circa 1918 James Naismith Lecture Broadside. Fantastic and patriotic broadside invited World War I soldier to hear "The Inventor of Basket-Ball, Dr. Jas. Naismith of the University of Kansas...speak on 'The Game of Life'..." The 8.5x11" cardboard sign issued by the "American YMCA" shows a degree of edge and corner wear but still presents beautifully. Certainly the only surviving example of this important relic.
