Oh, I want this but it’s a little pricey for my blood. Recently offered up on eBay was this beauty:
What you have here is a sign promoting a road trip to the 1906 game in Columbus against Ohio State. $3.25 bought you a round trip train ride leaving at 7:40 a.m. from the Gandy Dancer, getting you back in town at 11:40 a.m. drenched in tobacco and alcohol. I love it.
And yes, your beloved Yostmen returned home on that evening of October 20, 1906 the Victors, pulling out a 6-0 in Columbus. A ruckus train ride no doubt ensued.
Some other wild stuff on eBay right now:
* A cane belonging 1896 Michigan center John Wombacher:
* Hit Telly Savalas, win a prize – up for sale equipment allegedly discarded from the U-M weight room, WTF.
* Pink Shoelaces – Breast cancer Denard helmet:
* Also file under allegedly, Ron Kramer’s game pants? If so, belong at Schembechler Hall not on the eBay:
