Football cards, autographs and memorabilia are plentiful in this auction. Thirty card lots range from the 1930s to 2010s and include a 1932 Denby Cigar Premium of the NFL Champion Chicago Bears, scarce mid-1930 Wheaties panels and early Bowman, Kahn’s, Leaf, Post Cereal and Topps cards. More than 20 autograph lots include such Pro Hall of Fame members as Gale Sayers; George Allen, Blanda and Trafton; Joe Greene, Mike Webster, Cal Hubbard, Bill Walsh, Bobby Layne (with his most exciting football moment), Red Badgro, Lynn Swann, Dan Fouts, Dick Night Train Lane and many more. For college collectors, there is an autograph of Gerald R. Ford, MVP of the 1934 University of Michigan football team and future U.S. President; and autographs of Ara Parseghian, Joe Paterno, Duffy Daugherty, Brud Holland and Milt Morin, a member of the College Hall of Fame and a two-time Pro Bowl selection at tight end for the Cleveland Browns. Morin signed a game-worn shoe from his Browns career.
