    1960's Ernie Davis Memorabilia Collection, With Signed Photograph. For those who have followed Heritage Auction Galleries' previous Signature Auctions, we feel they will agree that our venue has become known for selling some of the best Ernie Davis memorabilia ever to appear in the hobby. Here's another catalog listing that will qualify as an "upper-tier" piece representing the first African American ever to win the Heisman Trophy. Included are three pieces representing Davis and his Syracuse football team. Headlining these scarce artifacts is a 5.5x7" black and white image of Davis signed in 8/10 ball-point ink. The photos consists of light paper stock, while exhibiting two horizontal creases and moderate wear. There are light tape remnants on the two bottom corners, and a 1x1.5" piece of blue tape on the verso. Also included is an original unsigned EX game program from the November 11, 1961 game between Davis' Orangemen and Colgate. The last item is a 3.5x5.5" souvenir card from "Ernie Davis Day," which features stamped signatures of Davis and football legend Jim Brown. Card exhibits moderate wear. Superb trio representing one of the most prolific players of collegiate football. Full LOA from JSA. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
