Items I've sold

These are some very RARE items I had in my posession at one time.  I have either sold these items or traded them to other collectors.

This is a piece of drywall I purchased from the University of Iowa when they renovated Kinnick Stadium back in 2004.  This was a Hayden Fry slogan that he implemented when he became coach at Iowa.  It is said that five sections of drywall with this slogan were installed throughout the locker-room as motivation for the team.   The tradition still continues today.

 Below is a 1958/1959 Big Ten Champions Rose Bowl autographed football.  This is an amazing Football that was once owned by the great entertainer Bob Hope. I bought this at his estate sale and have confirmed that the Iowa Team gave him this football at the Big Ten Banquet when Iowa traveled to the Rose Bowl that year.   It is autographed by great players such as Bobby Jeter, Randy Duncan, Willie Fleming, etc.  It also has the autographs of coaches Forest Evashevski, Jerry Burns, Jerry Hilgenberg, among others.

1963 Notre Dame vs Iowa Game Program

1963 Notre Dame vs Iowa Ticket

John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States, was assassinated at Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963. Many public events were canceled following the assassination, including the University of Iowa’s scheduled football game with Notre Dame in Iowa City the following day. Some notables on the Hawkeyes’ 1963 roster included Gary Snook, Wally Hilgenberg, Paul Krause and Mike Reilly.
Above are a couple VERY RARE items from that game that I sold. The game was never played, so therefore nobody went to the stadium and game programs weren't handed out.  The only ones who got a game program from that game were individuals who were a part of the media, etc and they received them probably by mail before the game.  It sounds like only a small amount of these even exist.  Also, any ticket from this game is rare because the University instructed people to send their tickets in for a refund.  Most people did. Those that kept them are few and far between.
