I am in the process of downsizing and came across various football publications that I have collected over the many years I have been a Penn State fan. I am hoping that one of the Board readers will be happy to add these to their own personal library. There are 10 publications, including:

1) Sports Illustrated, January 8, 1979, "Bama Stops Penn St"
2) Sports Illustrated, January 10, 1983, "No. 1 at Last" (famous picture with Gregg Garrity on the cover)
3) Sports Illustrated, Special Collector's edition, "That Perfect Season, Penn St 1994"
4) Game Day Program, Penn St v Stanford, September 13, 1975
5) Game Day Program, Penn St v Pitt, September 26, 1976
6) Game Day Program, Penn St v West Virginia, October 22, 1977
7) Game Day Program, Penn St v Maryland, November 4, 1978
8) Penn State Football Media Guide 1982
9) Penn State Football Media Guide 1983
10) Penn State Football Preview 1986, published by Happy Valley Promotions

I live in the Hartford, Connecticut area and would be more than happy to meet up within a reasonable distance. For those out of the area, I would kindly ask that the recipient take all of the publications, and that they pay for shipping. The publications fit nicely in a US Post Office Medium Flat Rate Box, at $16.25.

Thanks.

My recollection is that the November 4, 1978 game against Maryland landed PSU on the cover of SI entitled "Prodigious Penn State" with our QB on the cover. It was a glorious fall day, both weatherwise and the outcome on the field as well.

I was at the game, but don't remember too many details. Back in those days, when I had season tickets from about 1975 to about 1983, there were soooo many big games. I guess I was not a SI subscriber at that time, so I do not remember the issue you are referring to above. For the glory....

I also have some interesting PSU Memorabilia, multiple Town and Gown Football annuals as well as The Lion in Autumn and The Penn State Football encyclopedia. All staying with me for a while, so much fun to go back and reminisce,
