Vintage Sports Posters Part 3

Part 3 of my series on vintage sports posters still deals with the Lederer, Street & Zeus Co., Inc. that I talked about in Part 2.

Today we take a look at what was probably a supplement issue from them just pertaining to football. The piece has no copyright date, but I'll put it at 1934 or 1935 because of the Stanford piece shown below. It's also interesting to point out that the Stanford piece has the old team name Indians. They changed to the Cardinals in 1972.

The catalog has 11 pages with 22 different designs.

Being that this issue is from the mid 1930's would mean that both Lon Keller and Don Spencer would have most likely worked on it.

Part 4 of the series will feature another LS & Z catalog from 1941-42. 


  1. Lederer, Street & Zeus, was my family's company. Where did you happen to get all of these posters?
    just curious...?

  2. The pieces shown above are part of my personal collection. As a graphic designer and vintage sports fan, they were the perfect addition. I would love to hear more about your family's business. Do you have any of the original posters or catalogs?
