    Description

    1910's Canton Bulldogs Football Sweater. This beautiful old football sweater is a relic of the early stages of professional football and would have been in the locker room back when the likes of Jim Thorpe, Guy Chamberlin and "Greasy" Neale were America's early gridiron greats.

    This beautiful tight knit wool sweater sports the official colors of the Canton Bulldogs, maroon body with cream accents. The Bulldogs lettering is applied in off white felt, stitched on to the front of the sweater and the spelling is correct for the time period (two words: BULL DOGS).

    The sweater was manufactured by "O'Shea Mills" and has the proper period tags from the 1910's era. The sweater is in used but extremely nice condition, displaying signs of aging, with minor stains and mothing, but nothing that distracts from its overall presentation. It was sourced from the Cleveland area, where the team moved after leaving Canton in the early 1920's. This piece came with the other Bulldogs jewelry items featured in this auction. LOA from Lou Lampson.
