    1935 Lynn St. John Signed Ohio State Vs. University of Chicago Football Games Contract - Ultra Rare Basketball Hall of Fame Autograph! An almost mythical legend of Ohio sports, Lynn St. John will forever be remembered as a football, basketball and baseball coach, and a true sports pioneer who served on the NCAA Rules Committee along with James Naismith. In addition, The Saint served as the Buckeyes' second athletic director for 33 years.

    Offered here is one of the toughest of all Basketball Hall of Fame signatures, and the document that Lynn St. John (Dec. 1950 and elected to the Hall of Fame in 1962) signed is historic in its own right. Presented on an original agreement between the University of Chicago and Ohio State to play multiple football games in the 1930's, Lynn signed the 8.5x11" contract in 9/10 black fountain pen ink. Exhibiting near perfect condition, this piece will be sure to fill a long-awaited void in a near complete Basketball Hall of Fame signature collection. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
