A much-traveled thoroughfare in years past, the catalog was a major source for sporting equipment and the discovery of new products. This vintage collection is highlighted by a number of these publications. Well maintained with covers and pages intact, the guides average (VG-EX) and include:

1915-1916 Schmelzer’s Basket Ball and Football Catalog (with original unmarked ordering form)

1921-1922 Wilson Fall and Winter (cover is GD, though interior is much nicer)

1921-1922 Wright & Ditson Fall & Winter (EX)

1924-1925 Hubby-Gaither Company Fall-Winter Athletic Goods (FR)

1924-1925 M&H Football/Soccer/Basketball/Boxing (VG-EX)

1925-1926 Shipley & Guerinot Fall & Winter Sports (VG with moisture-induced stains)

1927-1928 Goldsmith Fall & Winter Sports Catalogue (presents as EX-MT but technically lesser with notations throughout)

1930 A.G. Spalding & Bros. Fall and Winter (GD)

Also included are (5) instructional guides with a 1935 Heffelfinger’s Football Facts (VG) and a 1935 NCAA Football Rules leather-bound manual.
