About this Item

15 photos (all but two 8x10", b&w) and one 1942 souvenir booklet of the St. Mary's vs. Nevada football game in the Oakland Ball Park. Motley was a historic sports figure being one of the first Blacks to integrate and play in professional football, being very successful at it. He was born in Canton, Ohio, played high school football there and was the second Black to become a team member (on August, 9, 1946) of the Cleveland Browns (following Bill Willis, the first by 3 days). The photos show Motley running on the field in his Cleveland playing days, his family (wife and sons), team portraits and his later days with retired players and perhaps hall of fame activities. The souvenir booklet refers to his days at Nevada before going to the Browns. Most of the items in this lot are from the late 1940s to early 1950s period although some (of Motley's later life are obviously from a later period (perhaps the 1970s). Very scarce inperiod material unlikely to be seen again. Most photos are VG, the souvenir booklet is in poor but tolerable condition with a few page edges frayed, dampstaining throughout & one or two ads cut out. Bookseller Inventory # 000126
