Harvard Yale Game 1922

We have previously written about the Parker Brothers version of the Harvard-Yale game.

Today, we look at the Yale-Harvard Football game made by the La Velle Manufacturing Company of New Haven Connecticut in 1922.

The game was played on a 22″ by 35″ felt field with yards and downs marked and contained two goal posts, two spinners and several mechanical football players made of metal. It also had line markers, wooden football players and wooden markers. 




A decent copy sold recently at auction for $270, significantly less than the $1,800 that the 1894 version of the Harvard-Yale Game sold for, but still a robust price.
