COOL TUMBLR FIND!


I check out quite a few of the vintage related Tumblrs.  They can be a great source for photos of old cars, furniture, and retro stuff.  I saw this pic a few days ago and saved it because it is so cool.  Look at that great silver tree!  Anyway, a couple of days later I noticed the pennant just over her right shoulder.  It is a New York Generals soccer pennant.  The Generals only lasted from 1967 to 1968 and the date on the Polaroid is December, 1968. All around, a great photo.

HELP!


I need some help.  I recently added this photo to my collection.  It came from an estate sale but no information was provided.  Other than Kyle Rote, Jr. I cannot make out any of the autographs.  If anyone can help to identify them, please contact me at gorogues@gmail.com.
Thanks!

***UPDATE***

Thanks to Chuck at the International Soccer Archives the signatures have been identified as belonging to the 1979 Houston Hurricane.
Thanks Chuck!
