    Circa 1935 Gene Roberts University of Southern California Trojans Letterman's Sweater. Under head coach Howard Jones, the University of Southern California Trojans were just one of a few nationally dominant teams of the era. It was during that memorable period when the gridiron powerhouse would be referred to as the "Thundering Herd," and directly from that significant era we present an original football letterman's sweater worn by star left guard Gene Roberts. In USC's traditional "Cardinal" colored knit fabric, this beautiful garment has the proper "Sherwood's" and "Roberts" tags in the collar, while its interlocking "SC" patch is on the left breast. Its original five buttons are intact, with no holes present, while the only flaw is a moderate amount of missing fabric on the front patch. Any memorabilia from this era, relating to Trojans football, is highly sought after in the hobby and this beauty's eye appeal is as strong as its gridiron significance. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
