1894 N302 Mayo's Cut Plugs Football Cards
The 1894 Mayo's Cut Plug Football Set contains 35 cards measuring 1 5/8" by 2 7/8", and showcases collegiate players from either Yale, Harvard, or Princeton. Due to the unique black-backed design of these cards, wear or damage can be very easily seen. In addition to this set's unique design, it holds the distinction of being the only nineteenth century football set.
The most interesting facet of this set is of the "anonymous" John Dunlop card, as he was an unknown player when the set got released, and it was only years later that he was properly identified.
