Orange Bowl Memories

I found this gem at my local Habitat Restore here in Charlotte. You can locate your own copy or find it in a library here. Here are a few of the highlights.
Contrasting Bears here and here.
Speaking of Alabama, dig the MGR shirt.
Here is a good shot of a Syracuse player wearing clear facemask.
UGa’s Frank Sinkwich
Tom Osborne is looking sharp.
The Ol ball coach in his playing days.
Clemson had mighty big helmets in 1951.

Here is my favorite, plastic vs. leather from the 1947 Orange Bowl between Rice and Tennessee. This is the sort of thing that makes a helmet geek drool. Just read the caption. There are a few more details about the game located in this pdf.

Thanks for stopping by and also thanks to Paul at Uniwatch for the link.
