1924 Lafayette Football Cards
There are 20 cards in the 1924 Lafayette College set. The cards are blank-backed, and they were issued as a set. You can see an original envelope for the cards on the Legendary Auctions web site.
Six of the players in the Lafayette set went on to play in the NFL. One of the six, Charlie Berry, also played 13 seasons of major league baseball. Two members of the 1924 Lafayette team, Berry and Coach Herb McCracken, are members of the College Football Hall of Fame.
A big thanks to Carl Lamendola for providing the images for this set.
