    1940's Davey O'Brien Handwritten, Signed Letter. One of very few handwritten letters ever offered from the 1938 Heisman winner out of TCU, the 5.25x7" signed piece reads as follows:

    Dear Mr. Tufte,

    I appreciate your letter a lot and I feel honored that you wrote me. I guess my greatest thrill was in the Carnegie Tech game when my placekick was good. Thanks again for writing. Sincerely, David O'Brien

    Written in 7/10 black fountain pen ink, it exhibits multiple folding throughout. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
