    Description

    1929 Chicago Bears Schedule Broadside with Red Grange. Before the appearance on the scene of the game's biggest star, professional football was given about the same respect as was the recent X.F.L. College football was the only football that mattered, so it is certainly not overstating the matter to claim that the University of Illinois star single-handedly brought legitimacy to the National Football League. Joining Babe Ruth, Bobby Jones and Bill Tilden as the Golden Age representative of his respective sport, Grange was the only obvious choice to be featured on promotional materials for pieces such as this marvelous broadside that encourages fans to attend Bears games at Chicago's Wrigley Field. The powerful image of the Galloping Ghost is framed by bold art deco text, creating one of the most aesthetically beautiful broadsides to reach the auction block in recent memory. Condition is remarkable for an artifact of this vintage, with the small supply of light creasing restricted all but entirely to the white areas of the piece and doing nothing to detract from the tremendous eye appeal. The heavy card stock broadside is 14x21" in size, but its importance is simply immeasurable.
