The Ironmen of 1939 might go down as the greatest team in Iowa Football History. Dr. Eddie Anderson did an amazing job in his first year coaching the University of Iowa football squad and led them to heights no-one expected. This created a buzz not only in Iowa City, but around the Nation. One of Iowa's greatest players, Nile Kinnick, won many awards, including the Heisman trophy. The stadium was named Kinnick stadium in 1972. Other greats that played for the 1939 Ironmen team were captain Erwin Prasse, Mike Enich, Al Couppee, William Green, William Diehl, Dick Evans, Buzz Dean, and many others.

Below you will see an autographed University of Iowa yearbook and it is signed by that 1939 University of Iowa football squad, including Nile Kinnick and the other great Ironmen. I'm thrilled to own such a High End collectible and one of the only pieces I have seen that has their autographs next to their pictures.

Below is the pocket schedule for 1939 and all the programs & ticket stubs from that memorable year, including the Very RARE Second Edition Minnesota homecoming program that you will see at the bottom.  The University must have ran out of programs for that game.. and had to use the Indiana game cover because it has a black stamp overlay on the teams and date.  It also says "First Edition Sold Out, except front cover, this second printing is identical to the first."   You will also see I have 2 FULL Tickets to games in that 1939 Season. One FULL ticket is to one of the greatest games in Hawkeye history, the 1939 Notre Dame vs. Iowa game that ended in a 7-6 score. The other FULL ticket is to the Homecoming game against Minnesota. These full tickets are very RARE! I have also been able to find three alternate type (student, child, etc.) ticket stubs for 3 away games in which I have never seen before, which is neat.  The only stub I am missing is the South Dakota stub, in which nobody has seen.  I feel very fortunate to have all of these in my collection.
