    Description


    Desmond Howard Michigan Heisman Pose Signed Photograph. During the 1991 season, after he became a Heisman contender, Howard decided that he would do "something special" during the Michigan-Ohio State game "as a little shout-out to the people back in Ohio". After scoring in the game, in the end zone he wanted to do a backflip but, Howard later said, "chickened out"; instead he imitated the pose of the football player on the Heisman trophy, immediately receiving much media attention. Comparing his act to Muhammed Ali's taunting of opponents, Steve Rushin observed that although Howard's pose did not resemble the statue at all, "that looks more like the Heisman Trophy of our imagination than the Heisman trophy itself ... thousands of people must have instantly picked up some object and tried to do the same thing".

    Offered is an 8x10" photograph of Howard imitating the famed trophy that he would go on to win. Signed in blue sharpie it displays beautifully. Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA.
