    Early 1940's Angelo Bertelli Notre Dame Fighting Irish Letterman's Sweater. After entering Notre Dame as a skinny but talented 173-pound tailback in the single-wing formation, coach Elmer Layden left to become commissioner of the NFL, which paved the way for the Irish's new coach Frank Leahy to notice Bertelli's passing skills.

    Fast forward four years later to Bertelli's senior year and not only did he win the Heisman Trophy, but he also helped lead his squad to its first national title, as awarded by the Associated Press.

    Presented here is Bertelli's letterman's sweater that he wore during his time spent in South Bend. Highlighted by his name chain linked in gold thread in the interior, the size 44 memento has the proper "King Sportswear Company" tag in the collar. Exhibiting moderate wear throughout, there are only a few small holes, which are barely noticeable. Letter of provenance from the Bertelli Family.
