Any Ohio State game ticket during the great Chic Harley's playing days is hard to come by. A full, near mint condition ticket? Well, that's just unheard of. Until now.

The defending Western Conference Champions entered the game with Denison on October 27, 1917, with a perfect 3-0 record and yet to be scored upon. On a rainy day and a muddy track, Ohio State had no problem scoring touchdowns.  A couple long runs highlighted a 67-0 beatdown of the Granville team.

Ohio State would go on to win the Western Conference Championship and complete their second consecutive undefeated season. Their lone hiccup was a 0-0 tie against Auburn in a fundraising game for the American soldiers.  Ohio State's Chic Harley became Ohio State's first two-time All-American and two years later would be honored for a third time.  The scarcity of a full Ohio State ticket for a game that featuring him can not be overstated.
