Any Ohio State game ticket during the great Chic Harley's playing days is hard to come by. We brought you the only known full ticket example in our 2020 Kickoff Auction and now we present its neighboring seat that came from the same collection.

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 featured him can not be overstated.
