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.
