Thanksgiving Uncle Sam Ready to Play Football in a Patriotic Vintage Postcard

Happy Thanksgiving from a turn-of-the-century c. 1907-1915 Uncle Sam! Our readers know of our penchant for unusual vintage postcards, and this one is a winner with its patriotic red, white and blue motif, combined with Uncle Sam ready for the kick-off, football in hand. The artist signed antique post card (Percy, last name illegible) says “World’s 20th Century Champion.” Sports and imperialism are an unusual combination, but here you have it.

So finish up the turkey and enjoy the big day’s triple header: the NFL’s Green Bay Packers meet the Detroit Lions on the Lions’ home turf; the Oakland Raiders travel to Dallas to take on the Dallas Cowboys in the Raiders’ first Thanksgiving game since 1970; and the first turkey day game in Denver since 1963 is on TV tonight, as the Denver Broncos host the New York Giants.
