    1911 Walter Camp "Football for the Spectator" Signed Hardcover Book. Walter Camp is widely acknowledged as the "Father of American Football." He was a charter member of the Harvard-Yale rivalry, and ultimately became Yale's first head coach - there kneading the gridiron game to an institution far distinct from English rugby. Signed the same year this extremely scarce book was published, Camp used 8/10 black fountain pen ink to scribe a superb signature on the first page. While exhibiting medium wear and overall EX condition, the gridiron pioneer added "Thanksgiving 1911," to his highly desirable exemplar. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
