    1936 College All-American Football Team Signed Oversized Photograph With Tuffy Leemans, Dan Fortmann & Elmer Layden. The men captured on this original 20x12" College All-American team oversized photo have their entire gridiron lives ahead of them. Some realized a professional dream while others chose to contribute to society in other ways. For Tuffy Leemans and Dan Fortmann, the Hall of Fame was their final football resting spot. Signed by the team in black ink is this photo. Tape is affixed at various points, the corners are chipped and fold marks transverse through. Any imperfections of the photo are made up by the signatures - average 8/10. Leemans is prominently featured on the right side. Fifty-seven players, by our count, signed neatly against their image. The crest on the All-American patch on the sweaters is from 1935. Signatures include: Millen, Fromhart, Lind, Jorgensen, LeVoir, Topping, Lawrence, Sarno, Stydahar, Leemans, Fortmann (6/10), Rees, Lindberg, Peters, Smith, Layden, Roscoe and Elmer Layden and many more. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
