GRANTLAND RICE
Index card signed by sports writer Grantland Rice, a modern pioneer of sports journalism who coined the nickname "The Four Horsemen" for Notre Dame's 1924 offensive backfield
Signature: "Grantland Rice". 5x3. Typed caption: "Feb.23,1936/Autograph of/GRANTLAND RICE./Sports". Considered a pioneer of modern sports journalism, Rice (1890-1954) was thefirst U. S. newspaperman to gain fame by writing about sports. Credited with the popular phrase "It's not whether you won or lost, but how you played the game" and nicknaming Notre Dame's 1924 offensive backfield the "Four Horsemen" after an upset win over Army, Rice covered the careers of such legendary sports greats as Bobby Jones, Jack Dempsey, Bill Tilden, Helen Wills. His column The Sportlight was nationally syndicated in 1930, and Rice also produced documentaries and wrote books about sports, including one about his favorite sport of all, The Duffer's Handbook of Golf (1926). Lightly toned and creased. Lightly rounded and worn corners. Otherwise in fine condition.
