“I wish I could say that I went in and ran for the winning touchdown, but I did not. I simply stood by in case my team needed me.” -E. King Gill
January, 1922. Coach Dana X. Bible and The Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas are getting beat up – Centre College is taking it to the boys from A&M in the Dixie Classic. Fearing that he is running out of men, Coach looks up into the stand. Squints. Yells up and gets E. King Gill. He runs down and puts on the uniform of an injured boy. It's sweaty and bloody and doesn’t fit at all, but Gill's been called to go in for a family in need. The Aggies prevail. Gill is the only player left standing on the sideline. 
Almost a century later, the A&M faithful haven't sat down yet.

What goes into an Old Try letterpress print?

Love. History. Cut hands. And a little bit of cussing.

Beautiful design & high quality

Received this as a gift, and I'm thrilled with it. I'm proud to be able to hang something that represents my state well, and the design looks simply fantastic. High quality, to the point that I purchased another Old Try print when I saw how good it looked. Would recommend.

Five stars and nothing less

This was our second purchase from The Old Try. Their prints make for such a warm welcome in our Atlanta home. Each product is made in the US and made with intention. The company (Micah) is super thorough in communicating order & shipping information (and awesome follow-up emails). Love this'un and all the rest! Thanks again!
