Sports Clubhouse is proud to offer our most EXTREMELY RARE and COLLECTIBLE item! "The Will To Win" 1926 Rose Bowl Game Alabama vs Washington 22-page Champ Pickens Pictorial with foldout Panorama of Rose Bowl Kick-off. Celebrate the Alabama Crimson Tide's 17th National Championship following their victory against Georgia in the 2018 College Football Playoff National Championship game with the very first National Championship that started them all!!!Here is a priceless collectible 22-page pictorial of the game that put University of Alabama football on the map forever! It also includes the foldout panoramic photograph of the Rose Bowl. The pictorial measures 9.5" x 12" and has a leather cover.
The first page of the three-page panoramic photograph foldout has separated from the other two, but all of the pages are still in excellent condition. The cover has only very small fraying along the top edge. This is the book that started it all and it is now over 92 years old! The book is a pictorial collection of 22 photographs of the trip to California, the Crimson Tide's stay at Hotel Huntington, photos from the game itself and the team's triumphant return to Tuscaloosa.
It also includes a foldout panoramic photograph of the Rose Bowl taken just after kickoff. There are also a handful of articles about the game by noted sports writers including Daymon Runyon and Walter Eckersall (who was also a referee in the game itself). So how priceless is this book? I know of only four others that exist and two of them are in the Bear Bryant Museum.
Most Alabama fans will recognize many of the images in. Especially since they have been reproduced in various publications since the 1926 Rose Bowl. The captions are really amazing and they often identify various individuals in the photographs which are household heroes to Bama fans! This would be THE MOST VALUABLE addition to your Alabama Football collection! This is an ACTUAL photo of the item you will receive!
