History: On November 6th, 1869, The Princeton Tigers (The College of New Jersey at the time) were participants in the first ever intercollegiate football game versus Rutgers College (Rutgers University today). Rutgers won the contest with Princeton winning the rematch just a week later. Before joining the Ivy League in 1956, Princeton dominated the early days of the sport capturing 22 of the first 40 National Titles between 1869 - 1909. They won their last National Championship to date in 1950 with Princeton Heisman Trophy winner Dick Kazmaier leading the way. Today, the Princeton Tigers football team remain members of the Ivy League and play their home games at Princeton Universiity Stadium, Princeton, New Jersey.
Please note: Within the wool yarns, there may be some slight color variations. This is an inherent trait of the authentic wool we use. This should not be considered a flaw, but like the original garment, merely part of its charm.
