Yale, Harvard and Princeton were referred to as “The Big Three” in reference to their football programs in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Cigar makers and distributors designed incredibly ornate lithographed images to adorn and market their products; using popular themes like nature, architecture and sports. Offered here is a collection of 27 proofs used to produce the Yale, Harvard, Princeton (Y H P) inner cigar box label. The label shows what are often referred to as the “three twins” in their respective football uniforms. The amount of proofs is astounding and sheds light on the level of intricacy and precision utilized to produce these works of art. Of the 27 proofs 26 measure approximately 6” by 9” and have been two hole punched. The final proof is full color and is mounted to a piece of cardboard.
