Now that’s a bargain


On the prowl for U of C memorabilia? A quick troll through E-bay’s collection last Friday turned up 36 items matching “University of Chicago,” including several vintage postcards, a 1929 football schedule, and a brass pennant-shaped pin circa 1890–1915.

At $24.99, the most expensive item was an 11”x14” photograph of a Chicago gargoyle, while a 1916 baseball team photo ($1) and a used U of C Spanish–English Dictionary ($0.99) ran the lowest. A reproduction of a 1904 panoramic campus photo, measuring 16.5” x 6.5”, began at $9.95.
