    1930's Chicago Bears Original Photographs Lot of 29 - With Six Red Grange Images. During his time in collegiate and professional football, there was no bigger sports star than Harold Red Grange. The day after his legendary career with the University of Illinois, the halfback known as the Galloping Ghost agreed to a contract with player/manager George Halas and the Chicago Bears, while putting together a 19-game barnstorming tour that is credited with helping legitimize professional football in the United States.

    Offered here is an intriguing and scarce collection of 29 original photographs, each featuring images of the Chicago Bears during the 1930's. Grange is depicted in six of the photographs, while the following are included: 26 original snap shots from a Bears photo shoot at Los Angeles' Gilmore Stadium; two undated team photographs (10x12.75" and 8x10" - each with Grange pictured); 1932 8x10" team photograph; 1938 8x10" George Burke team photograph. EX quality is averaged throughout. An amazing lot, which will be sure to turn the heads of even the most distinguished Bears enthusiasts.
