1921 Canton Bulldogs Nfl Game Used Ticket Stub Vs Philadelphia Union Quakers For Sale

1921 Canton Bulldogs Nfl Game Used Ticket Stub Vs Philadelphia Union Quakers

This is a ticket stub from the 12/3/21 NFL football game between the Canton Bulldogs and the Philadelphia "Union" Quakers at Philadelphia Ball Park. (Baker Bowl) 12,000 fans witness the game. Canton Bulldogs win 14-9. Originally scheduled for 11/19/21, this game was rescheduled and played 12/3/21.
The 1921 Canton Bulldogs featured future Hall-Of-Famer Wilbur (Pete) Henry and one of the first African Americans to play professional football, Jaye Mayo "Inky" Williams.

During the 1921 season, several of the Buffalo All-Americans, most notably futurePhiladelphia Eaglesco-founderLud Wray, also played for thePhiladelphia Quakers, an independent club based inPhiladelphia, Pennsylvania. Since Philadelphia was subject toblue lawsin the commonwealth ofPennsylvania, the Quakers had to play their games on Saturdays, as opposed to the Sundays used by the APFA, including Buffalo. The Buffalo players played for Philadelphia on Saturday, then traveled back to Buffalo for Sunday's game. A few days before the Quakers Buffalo were scheduled to play Canton on 11/19/21, the league found out about the violation of league policy, and made the players choose which team they wanted to play for. Five, including Wray, chose to stay with the Quakers, blaming the Buffalo management for "blowing the whistle." Buffalo was able to hire players from theDetroit Heralds, who folded midseason, to complete their roster. While the 11/19/21 contest was forced to be cancelled, the Canton Bulldogs ended up playing the Quakers on 12/3/2.

December 3 was a cold, overcast day that threatened snow all afternoon. Thankfully the bad weather held off until after the game. A first quarter series of passes by halfback Harry Robb set the stage for Canton's initial score, a short run into the end zone by Guil Fulcon that put the visitors ahead, 7-0. The Quakers responded late in the second quarter. Shortly before half ended, Heinie Miller and Bull Lowe broke into the backfield as the Bulldogs prepared to punt. Miller blocked the kick, and Lowe was on the ball in an instant. Three plays later the Quakers were on the board with a touchdown of their own. A failed point after attempt by Frank Morrisey left the Quakers trailing, 7-6. Ironically, it had been Morrisey who, as a member of the Rochester Jeffersons, snatched victory from the Quakers just three weeks earlier with a forty-sevenyard field goal. This was his first, and last, appearance with the Quakers. Late in the final quarter Union had the ball well into Canton territory. After three plays stalled just outside the Bulldogs' 20-yard line, a perfectly placed Johnny Scoot drop-kick put the Quakers ahead 9-7. Former Penn State stand-out Pie Way took the ensuing kickoff at the goal line. That started a Bulldog drive that, in addition to eating up most of the remaining time, culminated with a touchdown reception by Harry Robb. When the clock ran out the score stood at 14-9 in favor of the Bulldogs.

Any Canton Bulldogs memorabilia from the early 20's is almost non-existent. This historically significant ticket stub represents a rare glimpse into the origins of the NFL. May be the only surviving Canton Bulldogs ticket stub. Unique Tie-In to 1921 NFL Championship Controversy (Staley Swindle) as Buffalo would finish the season undefeated, (in part, because they successfully had the original Bulldogs/Quakers game moved to this date), yet lose Championship to the Chicago Staleys (Bears). The Buffalo team won the Championship with Detroit players they hired to replace defecting Quakers and released them before the end of the season "exhibition" game with the Staleys. However, the Staleys won the "exhibition", scheduled 2 more games after that and finished tied with Buffalo and was awarded the tie-breaker. The league was then forced to place a finite end to the season after the incident.

Despite the Bulldogs folding in 1927, the team played a role in Canton hosting the Pro Football Hall of Fame. First, the NFL was organized in a Canton automobile showroom on September 17, 1920. Secondly, the Canton Bulldogs were one of the early powers of pro football both before and after 1920. An NFL charter member, the Bulldogs became the new league’s first two-time champions with undefeated seasons in 1922 and 1923. Finally Jim Thorpe, the first big-name athlete to play pro football, began his pro tenure with the 1915 Canton Bulldogs.

See scan for condition. Ticket grade is fair. Creasing, soiling and scrapbook removal damage on reverse does not detract from this 92 year old piece of NFL memorabilia. Payment expected within 4 days of sale end. Thanks for looking!
