The Terrible 60s and 70s

One of our passions is collecting vintage Ivy League programs. There are so many exciting programs to collecting. The early programs, rich with history. The Victorian era programs inspire us with their beautiful image. The funny cover illustrations of the 40s, 50s and 60s showing humorous cartoons and team mascots. The super art deco period, where some of the cover illustrations are works of art.

One period that falls flat on its face are  programs from the 1960s and 1970s.The images on the programs during this period tend toward realism. Gone is any sense of history, any sense of the rich tradition that precided them. Not only do we dislike the programs, we intensely dislike them.


Perhaps they weren’t thinking here?


Gee, it might be attractive to show someone’s back through a chain-link fence? Delightful idea.


 Hello? Not only does he need a haircut, it looks like this was published when they were on a trip?

Our website has a nice selection of vintage Ivy League football programs, with not too many from this terrible period!
