Description

    1906 University of Minnesota Basketball Imperial Cabinet Photograph - First Big 10 Champions. Offered here is an extremely scarce Imperial Cabinet Photograph featuring the 1906 Big Ten champion Minnesota Golden Gophers. An absolutely crystal clear image of the historic basketball team, the image measures at 10.5x13.5", while its original cardboard backing measures at 16x20". Superb piece from the second year that the Big Ten started sponsoring men's basketball. Minimal wear exhibited throughout. This photo originated from Oscar Munson's estate. It was Munson who worked for the University of Minnesota as a janitor and later equipment manager. Munson's footnote in Gopher history is he was the one who started the tradition of the Little Brown Jug - annually traded back and forth to the winner of the gridiron tilt between Minnesota and Michigan.
