    Turn-of-the-Century Football Nose Mask. To the current standard of football protective headgear we have to say, you've come a long way, baby. Look at the archaic roots! Offered here is the cutting edge of early gridiron armor, essentially a heavy rubber shield that covers the nose, and is held in place by a cloth strap and a molded "bite plate" that fit between the teeth. "Morrills Patent Nose Mask" is stamped at top, and ancient teeth marks are still clearly visible from its days of use. Vintage football collectors should not miss this rare opportunity.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
