Incredible pair of press photos showing Duluth Eskimos action from 1926 and a classic shot of Ernie Nevers (same image used on his 1955 Topps All American football card).

The 6 1/2" x 8 1/2" game action photo is one of the few period images we have seen of Duluth, from a game played in late December against the "Californians". The photo carries a N. E A. stamp and is dated "DEC 22 1926" which would be near the beginning of Duluth's legendary barnstorming tour of 1926-1927. Although impossible to determine; the Duluth player at the far left of the photo does resemble Nevers.

The second photo also measures 6 1/2" x 8 1/2" and shows Nevers as a collegian at Stanford. The photo was originally mounted on a heavier paper and then used for press files as evidenced by numerous stamps on the reverse, the earliest being September 27, 1930.
