This is my first re-posting of an old “College Football Independent” post. It was originally posted on that blog on December 29, 2008.

1934 Rose Bowl Trophy (on eBay)

1934 Stanford Rose Bowl Trophy

1934 Stanford Rose Bowl Trophy

While looking on ebay.com I came across the 1934 Rose Bowl Trophy! The seller is asking $9,999 for it and it will be interesting to see if anyone actually buys it. This is a great item for any private collection, but $10K is a big price tag.

I have no idea if this trophy sold or not, but the auction’s description said that the trophy belonged to Stanford. Stanford lost the 1934 Rose Bowl game to Columbia and so I imagine this is some kind of participation trophy for having been invited to play in the Rose Bowl (which is an honor, in and of itself).

The College Football Independent (Old blog/Old posts)

by Travis Normand
January 17, 2017

I think I have mentioned this before, but the OnePointSafety.com is not my first attempt at running a college football blog. I have had a couple of blogs prior to this one, however, none of them were as successful. I had a blog at TexAgs.com titled “Campusology” (hence the name of the tabbed section on this blog), a blog on Google’s Blogger titled “The College Football Independent,” a WordPress.com blog titled “The Crystal Football,” and maybe one more that I can’t remember. I also did some guest blogging at places like PhilSteele.com and HeismanPundit.com; and I had an account at BleacherReport.com (all of which I would like to transfer here if possible).

For the longest time I had thought that everything I posted at those sites was gone, lost to the internet forever. However, the other day I found that my old Blogger and WordPress accounts were still “alive” and I could retrieve some of my old posts. I figured that some of them might be worth saving and so I have decided to start transferring them over here to OnePointSafety.com.

Keep in mind, these old posts are not timely anymore and they are probably worthless to anyone now (in fact, come to think of it, they were probably worthless at the time I originally posted them). However, for preservation sake, I am going to start re-posting them here. I will include the header/banner from the original blog into these posts in order to make these older posts more identifiable and easier for readers to skip or ignore if you are not interested. I hope you enjoy the walk down memory lane as much as I do.

Note: I am going to create a category for these old blog posts and title it “CFBIndependent-CrystalFootball.”  

Dartmouth – 1970 Undefeated Ivy League Championship Trophy

  • I first posted about this trophy on a different blog (“The College Football Independent”) on July 2, 2006.
  • Later I moved the post to my then WordPress.com blog (“The Crystal Football”) on June 20, 2011.
  • Now, I am finally moving this post to the OnePointSafety.com

In 1970 Dartmouth went undefeated and won the Ivy League Championship
(and the Lambert Trophy).

On June 28th 2006, one of the trophies from that team sold on eBay.com for $230.50.
