Professional Football on Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday; me about 4 years old ;)

As a avid collector of vintage items Throwback Thursday is an excellent excuse to browse and show of my favorite finds of the day.

On this day...

While football had been progressing towards a professional sport since 1896, on this day in 1920, Professional Football was moved toward the spectator sport that we all know and love today.  A group of owners of four Ohio Leagues met to create a professional league that will eventually be known as the American Professional Football Association.  (information from www.history.com)
