    Default I acquired an interesting USL collectible

    I obtained an old poster and was curious if anyone had any info about it, or it's purpose.

    It appears to have been printed between 1970-73, and for some reason it's a sepia print of an old Princeton-Brown game taken c.1900 (odd in itself). But, it seems to have been specifically printed for some sort of Athletics Dept endeavor and was made with areas for the Athletic Director, football coach, and president, who subsequently signed the posters.

    I thought it was unique and intriguing, because that kind of commercial whorism seems to be decades ahead of its time, and it also made me curious what they would have been pimping?

    Normally, I'd post a picture, but it was too large to scan, and since it appeared it had been tacked to the attic wall for the past 40 years, I just wanted to safely remove, package, and store it away with the rest of my memorabilia (...kind of ironic, it will probably be another 40 years before anyone sees it again.)

    You could always bring it to the EAUQUE for the ASU game and show it to us there!!

    If it were circa 1969 I would say it was a poster to celebrate the 100th anniversary of collegiate football . . . something UL recognized and celebrated.

    If it were circa 2001 I would say it was a poster to celebrate the 100th anniversary of UL football . . . something UL failed to recognize and celebrate, but not because I didn't let them know.

    ps you could take a picture and post the photo.

    Take it to Louisiana Digital Reproductions. They can scan up to 36" wide by infinite length. They are on University Ave. across from the St. John Cemetery. They will be able to scan to JPEG, TIFF or PDF. I go there all the time and have an account there. Talk to Rick Domas. They can do large scale printing too.
