    1909-26 Notre Dame Yearbooks Lot of 3. Offered here are three of the earliest Notre Dame annuals ever to hit the auction block. Featuring original yearbooks from 1909, 1920 and 1926, names and images of Red Miller, Pete Dwayer, Knute Rockne, George Gipp, Slip Madigan, Fred Walsh and countless other significant figures are presented throughout. In fact, the 1920 piece mentions the historically significant Indiana game, which the Irish were down 10-0, mainly due to Gipp remaining on the sidelines due to a shoulder injury. However, the Irish fought back to score and close the gap to 10-7. Then Rockne sent the injured Gipp in late in the fourth quarter, when he miraculously scored the game's final touchdown to give Notre Dame the win. Some feel this injury weakened Gipp and left him susceptible to the infection that killed him four weeks later.

    This trio exhibits phenomenal condition, with the 1909 example presenting NM-MT quality, and the 1920 and 1926 books in EX+ condition. Great collection for any Notre Dame alum or high-caliber vintage football collector.
