Description



Once Grantland Rice christened Notre Dame's backfield "The Four Horsemen," the offensive line was correspondingly dubbed "The Seven Mules." All 11 Fightin' Irish legends are present together for the rare 7-1/4" x 2-3/4" cardboard version with full subtitle and with a Knute Rockne-like figure on the reverse. (There appears to have been a hinge on one side that likely connected a top cover of the figure's front to match the back.) VG-EX condition. The accompanying 5x7 news-service photo is curious in that Horseman Ray Miller is subbed out for the Australian movie star Snub Pollard, as described in the reverse editorial notations. The image itself shows crystal-clear Type I quality. GD condition.
