Reprints

________________________________________________________________

Reprints of the programs for the years 1911 through 1941 were published in 1983 by Mitchell-Fleming Printing, Inc. of Greenfield Indiana. They are marked on the cover as being reprints.

There is also a legal notice inside from the Reprinter which in part states: "To distiguish this Reprinted Program from the original issue, the color scheme and stock was changed by the Reprinter."

Not all reprints have the legal notice inside but there should be the reprint notice on the cover. Not all reprints were copied correctly as there are years where pages are missing and some years have the guts of one program with the cover of another. All reprints have black and white printing inside - there is NO color printing to a reprint on the inside. An original 1914 program has no color printing inside either, but the paper stock is different and the cover is brown and white where as the re-print is light blue and black.

Below are examples of the reprint and real 1911, 1929, 1934 and 1940 programs.


As you can see, reprints are pretty easy to tell from the original - DON'T be fooled!
