1930 Notre Dame Football Review National Champs Rockne Leahy Autographs withCOA
1930 Notre Dame Football Review. Excellent condition, there's light wear on the top and bottom of the spine and creasing on the bottom right corner of the front cover. The binding is tight, and the signatures in the book are all sharp and clear and signed in fountain pen. The review is intact, and there's some light spotting on several pages that doesn't affect the content. 1930 Notre Dame Football Review program - In celebration of their 1930 National Championship season, the Fighting Irish produced this outstanding post-season review. At the time, head coach Knute Rockne was riding high on the crest of stardom as one of college football's all-time great coaches, but he died in a tragic plane crash in March of 1931, so this team was the last one he coached. This review is quite possibly a one of a kind item, as it was signed by Rockne and virtually ever player on the 1930 squad, including future ND coaching great Frank Leahy, who was the starting left tackle on the team. The Rockne and Leahy autographs were certified by SGC, and the review comes with the certification. They couldn't certify the other signatures because there are so few examples of the other players' autographs in circulation. The players who signed the book were - Nick Lukats, captain Tom Conley, Frank Carrideo, Marty Brill, Marchy Schwartz, Larry Mullins, Bert Metzger, Tom Kassis, Tom Yarr, Joe Savoldi (just his first name), Al Culver, Ed Kosky, Dick Donoghue, Joe Kurth, Mike Koken, Bucky O'Connor, Leahy, Dan Hanley, Cappy Kaplan, John O'Brien, Frank Butler, Jim Harriss, George Vlk, Bob Terlaak, Chuck Jaskwhich, Frank Hoffman, Bernard Leahy, Al Howard, Paul Host, John Rogers, Carl Cronin, Dick Mahoney, Bill Pierce, Regis McNamara, Frank Kerjes and Norman Greeney.
The book also includes complete summaries of all of the 1930 games, photos of the all-opponents team players and a feature article with photos of the new home for the Irish - Notre Dame Stadium.
