    Description

    1907 Iowa vs Wisconsin Football Program - The Rabbit Game! An early college football program between the Iowa Hawkeyes and the Wisconsin Badgers in offered here in superb condition. This was the "rabbit game"; one of the most notable contests in college football history. Iowa had taken a 5-0 lead going into the half. Just before the second half kickoff commenced, a rabbit sprinted out of Wisconsin's end zone, down the entire length of the field, and into Iowa's end zone. Later in the game, Wisconsin returned a punt for a touchdown (and eventual victory), following the path that the rabbit had laid down earlier.

    The cover depicts an early and heavily-padded ball carrier with "Iowa...Football Souvenir 1907." The interior is packed with fantastic individual and team photos of both the Iowa and Wisconsin squads, along with other delightful images of the Iowa campus. Constructed in a horizon format, the publication displays a very light vertical bend on the front cover, small corner crease on the back cover, and some page creases at the centerfold near the lower staples. But these distractions are relatively inconsequential when one considers the 111-year vintage of this program and the fact that the rest of it is intact and in otherwise outstanding condition
