    1957 Howard "Hopalong" Cassady Game Worn Detroit Lions - Worn in NFL Championship Game! One of the most prolific players in Ohio State Buckeyes history, halfback Howard Cassady scored 37 touchdowns in 36 games, and also played defensive back, where there was never a pass completed on him in his four years at the university. The 1955 Heisman Trophy winner, Cassady helped his Detroit Lions wallop the Cleveland Browns by a score of 59-14 in the 1957 NFL Championship Game.

    Presented here is Hopalong's blue Durene jersey that he wore during that historic contest, and it was consigned directly from the family of the woman who was given the shirt right after the game. Exhibiting solid wear throughout, it has the proper "Rawlings size 44", Lippman's Detroit" and washing tagging in the crotch piece. Signed in light ink by Cassady and legendary teammate Joe Schmidt, it has a small team repair near the front No. 4. An extremely popular style from a magical era of professional football. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
