A Silver Gelatin photo of Captain Francis "Tee" Young kneeling inside the recently built Horseshoe.  Young was the 1924 Ohio State captain, playing for Hall of Fame coach J.W. Wilce. "Tee" was widely admired by both his teammates and classmates while attending Ohio State during the early 1920's. He remained a fixture at football events well after his college football career ended. This photo was used in the 1925 Makio yearbook.

This lot originates from the Tee Young Collection, captain of the 1924 Ohio State football team.  He passed away from colon cancer in 1973.  A percentage of the total sale of this lot will be donated to the Buckeye Cruise for Cancer in honor of Francis "Tee" Young.
