Bass High School 1963 Football Program





I love finding unique items to list on eBay.  It is fun to play Antiques Roadshow and learn more about the unusual items.

I went to a great local yard sale in Atlanta a while back and purchased a nice stack of Bass High School football programs from the 1960's.  This is the last football program that I have left, and it is really neat.

Bass High School was built in 1923 as a junior high school.  It was located in the Little 5 Points - Inman Park area of Atlanta.  In 1947 Bass became a high school.  It closed in 1990, and was later converted to The Bass Lofts.  You will find a photo of Bass here:  The School on the Hill

This program is from a 1963 game between Bass High School and The Lovett School.  It has team photos, advertisements by local businesses (a neat peek at Atlanta in the 1960's), and of course a nice two page Coca-Cola centerfold ad featuring the roster of players.

You'll find this vintage program (and more vintage Atlanta items!) at Birdhouse Books:  Bass High School football program.
