    Description

    1890's Amos Alonzo Stagg Personal Passes Lot of 15 Including Football Pass. While most people laud Amos Alonzo Stagg for his many accomplishments on the football field, his expertise also spilled into other sports. The College and Basketball Hall of Famer was also a judge at many track meets through his 102 years. These 15 passes were issued to Stagg and used in some capacity. Taking top billing is an 8" pinback worn by Stagg when his Chicago Maroons played Cornell October 14, 1899 on the gridiron. The other 14 track passes include: 1906 Chicago vs. Wisconsin dual meet (tattered bottom), American Olympic Association small pin with "A.A. Stagg CIAA" written), 1924 National Collegiate Athletic Association Convention, 1915 Panama Pacific Games, 1900 Pullman Athletic Club track judge, 1905 University of Pennsylvania relay, 1888 Yale pin with "Stagg '88" on front, Chicago Judge at Finish, 1921 Chicago Chapter of the Knights of Columbus pin at Stagg Field (wear to ribbon), 1903 championship (ribbon partially disengaged), 1903 University of Chicago One Mile Relay 1st place ribbon, IAC Official Illinois yellow ribbon, Northwestern Official, Olympic Try Out Committee and 1897 University of Chicago Field Judge.

    More Information: This lot was consigned by Charlie Richesin, who was the head track coach at University of Pacific in Stockton, California. Stagg retired there and used to run around the track at the University while Charlie was coaching. They got to talking and eventually he took Stagg on as an assistant coach for the track team (to help "motivate the boys.") One day, Mr. Stagg and his wife had a meeting with Charlie and Stagg brought a cigar box into the office and showed him a bunch of medals and ribbons. He gave the box to Charlie and he has kept it since.
