Lot of two unidentified Yale football players from the 1890's. A decent amount of research returned no conclusive identities for either player. Included in the group is a 4 1/4" x 6" cabinet (very similar to some of the other photos that we are offering that we believe to be from 1892). The player resembles Frank Butterworth; but uniform matching from other photos also pointed towards a substitute player named Graves. The second photo is larger (5 1/2" x 7") and likely from the mid to late 1890's. The albumen photos are mounted on cardboard and appear to have one time been part of a yearbook (yearbooks from this era often were composed of cabinets that were inserted between pages with a window cut for the image) or in a frame.
