    1955 Will Booth Ohio State Game Worn Jersey & Big 10 Champions Jacket. This Ohio State University 1954-1955 football ensemble is a living visual tribute to the prowess of the OSU football program from the Woody Hayes 1950's-1970's era to the present day. The jersey and jacket were worn by quarterback/blocking back Will Booth, who was a three-year letterman for the Buckeyes squad which captured the Big Ten title in 1954 and 1955 and went ten and zero with a Rose Bowl win on January 1, 1955.

    The jersey is a gorgeous long sleeved red durene with the Buckeyes' now famous silver, black and white, eleven-stripe pattern embedded into the fabric. The six-button crotch piece flap remains intact with a "Berry's Sporting Goods (Columbus) Sand Knit" label and a size "44" flap tag. The condition is solid, and the color's vibrant, with numeral puckering and a major front chest repair.

    The accompanying jacket was awarded to Booth. The red wool garment features cream leather sleeves with multi striped, stretch ribbed knit collar, sleeve and waist cuffs. A "Harley Davidson Sporting Goods [size] 42" label resides in the collar while a red felt chain link identifier "W Booth" is stitched along the right leather trimmed pocket. A satin oval with double stitched "O/Big Ten Champions 1955" inlaid over an outline of Ohio Stadium boldly decorates the left chest. An outstanding Buckeyes' representation from the beginnings of the Woody Hayes era. LOA from Lou Lampson.
