    1880 Columbia vs. Yale Football Program with Walter Camp. Presented is a fold-over scorecard issued for a collegiate football game between Ivy League rivals Columbia and Yale on November 10, 1880, at Hamilton Park in New Haven, Connecticut with Walter Camp playing for Yale.

    The Father of American Football, Camp was responsible for the line of scrimmage, center snap, downs, safeties, point system, modern line and backfield arrangement, and downsizing on-field teams from fifteen to eleven players.

    The interior section lists the rosters for each club, while the reverse provides a score sheet to record the goals. The program measures 8.25x5.5" with 1.25" separation on the lower spine, two small creases in one corner, and scored in pencil with game summary in neat ink. The rest of the program is lovely and the aforementioned defects do not affect the overall beauty display and desirability of the piece, especially when one considers the presence of Camp, its scarcity, and the fact that it is 136 years-old.
