Sales of a piece of local football history will help the Greater Hazleton Historical Society preserve items from the area’s past in its museum.

The society will sell undamaged copies of a poster advertising the UNICO Football Classic between all-stars from Greater Hazleton and Panther Valley on Aug. 4, 1961.

Posters cost $10, and people can buy them when the museum is open on Sunday between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. For more information, telephone the society’s president, Tom Gabos, at 570-579-7976.

Each poster shows a punter against a yellow and white backdrop. Black letters advertise the game, and there’s a red and white emblem advertising Coca-Cola.

The game drew 4,000 fans to Harman-Geist Stadium.
