This is a photographic negative of a teams' mascot. The mascot's name is Oski. In this photo Oski is looking into his cyrstal ball with his right hand up to the side of his like he was scratching it. The cyrstal ball has a "?" on it and what appears to be a rose and a football field. This most likely represents a prediction of a Rose Bowl birth for which ever team Oski represents. Oski is also leaning up against a sign that says "Get With It" An original two-act musical comedy. Also in the background is a ten-speed bicycle.
