For anyone interested in an easy read on how it all began, Old Leather is a good introduction. The Columbus Dispatch The stories in Old Leather: An Oral History of Early Pro Football in Ohio, 1920-1935 have appeal far beyond that of average sports anecdotes.

Journal of Sport History This collection of 19 interviews with former players, owners, fans, and league officials sheds light on the origins of the National Football League.

Incredible 11. August 2005
Von N. Zender - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is one of the best football books I have ever read. Well worth the money spent. Unfortunately, the history of football infancy has been largely ignored over the last several decades. Old Leather has actually unearthed interviews from the men who created the NFL we know today - and all it all happened, largely, in Ohio. There's no filter here, just the actual words of pioneers like Fritz Pollard, the first African-American to play and coach in the NFL and graphic accounts of the brutal, masochistic violent nature of football before it was "civilized" for mass consumption. No football library is complete without a copy of Old Leather on shelf.

For football fans and general football buffs this is a great book. Not many books touch on early pro-football with such knowledge of the game. Great quick read!

Great Football Book 22. April 2006
Von Sean Lahman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Old Leather provides an intimate glimpse at pro football's early days. In the tradition of Larence Ritter's baseball classic "The Glory of Their Times," this book provides first person accounts from players, coaches, and executives from the NFL's first two decades. From Hall of Famers like Dutch Clark, Fritz Pollard, and Link Lyman to relatively unkown figures like Ike Roy Martin and Cyrus Kahl, all of the stories are fascinating. Until the mid-thirties, Ohio was the center of the pro football universe, and the interviews that Chris Willis has collected provide a unique insight to that time and place. For anyone interested in football history, this book is indespensible.
Outstanding! 11. April 2011
Von Jeff Albertsen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is an incredible first-hand account of the birth of professional football. On a personal note, I live less than an hour from Spartan Stadium, home of the original Portsmouth Spartans (now the Detroit Lions) and the field where Jim Thorpe himself spent a season playing semi-pro football. So the signifigance of this book is not lost on myself, but it would be a true treasure for anyone interested in NFL history or history of southern Ohio.
Fantastic!! 27. Mai 2013

One of the best books I have. amazing to hear from the people that were actually there in the formative years of the league to see what it was like it paints a picture in your head as you're reading it's just second to none highly recommend it
