HOWARD "HOPALONG" CASSADY
Rare signature from the 1955 Heisman Trophy recipient and College Football Hall of Fame Inductee
Autograph sentiment signed: "Best Wishes/Hopaling/Cassady", in black felt tip, 5x3. Howard "Hopalong" Cassady (1934-2019) is a former college and professional football running back, winning the 1955 Heisman trophy for his incredible college career. Playing for the Ohio State Buckeyes from 1952 to 1955, Cassady scored 37 touchdowns in 36 games, and never let a pass be completed on him as a defensive back. He earned his nickname during his first game as a freshman for Ohio State, noted for hopping across the field just like the fictional cowboy. Several records were set by Cassady during his time with Ohio State, many of which were not touched until several years after his departure. The athlete was also a successful baseball player, leading the team in home runs and stolen bases. After his successful college days, Cassady was drafted into the NFL, playing for the Detroit Lions, Cleveland Browns, and Philadelphia Eagles for several years before retiring in 1963. In 1979, Cassady was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. Corners slightly worn and creased. Slightly toned. Pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso. Fine condition.
