The 1943 Heisman Trophy winner is shown throwing a pass in this black and white photograph, PSA/DNA authenticated signature.
Inscribed Photograph signed: "To Keith/good luck/Angelo Bertelli/Notre Dame", B/w 10x8. Angelo Bertelli (1921-1999) was the first Heisman Trophy winner from Notre Dame (1943). The tall, skinny Bertelli was a fourth-string tailback in his freshman year, but in 1941 new head coach Frank Leahy recognized his passing skills, moved him to quarterback, and built the new T-formation around him. Bertelli responded by winning All-American honors twice and the Heisman trophy in his senior year, despite being drafted by the Marines Corps before seasons end. In World War II he fought in the Pacific, nearly killed on Iwo Jima when a mortar shell landed near him. After the war he was a businessman, and a radio announcer for Princeton football in the 1950s and sixties. With PSA/DNA sticker and Certificate of Authenticity (#P28977). Fine condition.
