Description:
1950's-60's Gus Welch Presentational Gold Watch. A full-blood Chippewa, who played quarterback for the Carlisle Indians that featured Jim Thorpe and was coached by Pop Warner, Gus Welch was presented this gorgeous gold "Bulova" watch around the 1930's. A three time Ohio League champion, member of the American Indian Athletic Hall of Fame and ranked as one of the three best quarterbacks in the USA in 1913, Welch received the watch from the "Coaches and Football Writers Assn. of Washington D.C.," according to its engraving on the back. Case is marked "10K Rolled Gold Plate" on the back, while its band (not original to the watch) is partially missing. Extremely rare presentational piece representing the College Hall of Famer, who served time in World War I.
