    Description

    The Galloping Ghost (Mascot, 1931). One Sheet (27" X 41"). This was a 12-episode serial starring legendary college football star Harold "Red" Grange. As a 3-time All-America at the University of Illinois, Grange brought the first huge crowds to pro football when he signed with the Chicago Bears in 1925. He formed the first AFL with manager-promoter C.C. Pyle in 1926, but the league folded and he returned to the Bears. In this serial, Grange plays -- you guessed it -- a gridiron star who's been wrongfully kicked off the football team for trying to help a friend, who conspired with gamblers to throw the big game. Grange spends the serial's remaining 11 episodes trying to clear his name. This one sheet is generally regarded as the international release poster for this serial. Fine.
