“Boiler Up!” The Purdue University Football Vault®: The History of the Boilermakers takes you on a journey through the history of Purdue football, starting with the first game in 1887. Along with a story woven by Purdue assistant athletic director for communications Tom Schott, this “scrapbook” contains never-before-published photographs, artwork and memorabilia drawn from Purdue’s athletic department and campus archives. Tucked into dozens of sleeves and pockets, fans will find reproductions of old game programs, historic tickets, numerous postcards and vintage photos. These fascinating replicas include an 1887 team photo, an 1899 Purdue-Indiana program, a 1903 Purdue-Indiana ticket, a 1929 sideline pass and ticket for the Michigan game, a 1940s-era pennant, a 1952 Purdue-Notre Dame program cover, a 1967 Rose Bowl bumper sticker and a 1984 “I Backed Purdue” Hoosier Dome dedication game button. No Boilermakers fan should be without this “home archive” of Purdue’s football history. Illustrated; Hardcover; 144 pages.
