    1958 Ernie Davis Signed High School Year Book - From Senior Year. After surfing through this intriguing annual from New York state's Elmira Free Academy, it will quite obvious who the "Big Man on Campus" was - none other than collegiate football legend Ernie Davis. Aside from being a superior high school athlete, Davis was also quite the scholar. According to his yearbook bio, Davis was president of the sophomore class and also a member of the student council. But it was in basket and football where he truly shined, and multiple photos of Davis, the player, can be found in this "EX" 1958 edition of the "Torch."

    In an exceedingly special offering, this yearbook has been signed and inscribed "Best of luck to you "Mike" in the coming years. Ernie 58," which has been signed in 9/10 blue ball-point ink. In addition, this iron-clad artifact includes notations and signatures from many other students, but it is the varsity basketball page, which features the Davis notation that makes this one of the most important treasures ever offered of the eventual Heisman Trophy winner. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. LOA from PSA/DNA.
