The Story of Football
A lavishly illustrated history of America's exciting gridiron sport
by Robert Leckie
copyright 1965
Random House, Inc.
177 pages
8 x 11x 1 inches
2 lbs

Here is a book that every football fan should own.
Ever wonder - Who is generally considered the Father of Football? or What former All-American and pro star became a Supreme Court judge?
"Football fans will find the answers to these and hundreds of other questions in THE STORY OF FOOTBALL. In this colorful chronicle of the exciting gridiron sport, Robert Leckie traces the development of football from a disorganized fee-for-all to the highly complex game we know today." quote from the inside flap of dust jacket.

Condition: This book is in very good vintage condition. The dust jacket shows some wear along the edges and some yellow stains on the top and bottom. The plastic overcoat is pealing off along the top of the dust jacket. The book cover has the same photos as the dust jacket. It has very little shelf wear. There is yellowing along the top and slightly along the bottom. The spine is stiff and the binding tight with all of the pages intact. The pages show some yellowing from age. There is an inscription written on the inside cover which charmingly says - To Bryan, Xmas 66, from Grandad Charley and Grandmom Tootsie. The rest of the pages are free from marking, rips or creases.
As with all vintage books some visible wear is to be expected.
