Re: The Story of Gridby

1926 Grand Final
July 10, 1926
Shibe Park
Philadelphia, PA


Gridby Club of New York 30
Philadelphia Spirits 10

The Spirits' second half collapse culminated in their ultimate failure to defend their home turf for the inaugural grand final.

The newly crowned champion GCNY would officially adopt "Marvels" as their nickname for 1927. The moniker had been given to the team by a New York Times sportswriter who deified team captain and player/coach Moe Bancroft as a "modern athletic marvel."

Re: The Story of Gridby

Marvels is definitely, an interesting nickname. Let's see if Marvel Comics gets involved with the team later on.

To be fair, Shazam was the original Captain Marvel while the company we know today as Marvel was once Timely, then Atlas.

Hopefully the Dodgers can stay in town so the Steeplechasers can too.

Re: The Story of Gridby

oH man. Despite me always liking the idea of a Boston Unicorns sports team. Those Keystone numbered Spirits makes this a tough choice for me to choose favorites... Guess I'll just have to wait and see who I decide to cheer for. Its interesting how you decided to follow the paths of the MLB (and assumingly the NFL once thats around)

The St. Louis Browns have also made cosmetic changes to their look for 1927.

I'm the only person who think that this sport could be great in real life?
