This fascinating piece of gridiron history features an all-black squad known as the 1944 Steam RolleróJ. West (left halfback), Levi (right halfback), Keith (center), Ambrouse (line), Hank (captain, right end), Tate (line), Bill (line), Slick (right halfback), Mays (left end), Cornbread (fullback), Barlo (line), Shorty (QB), Toughie (left halfback), Pee Wee (right guard), Earl (left guard) and Ruffis (manager). An inscription at lower right appears to be in the hand of the aforementioned Levi, "From Levi To Friend," thus suggesting that it was he who penned all the captions and the dotted borders. GD/VG condition overall due to peripheral creasing.
