Charles "Chic" Harley hand-painted football action figure. This figure was painted to look like Harley in 1919 with 47 on the back of the jersey, the last number that Harley wore at Ohio State and the one the one that honors him on the façade at Ohio Stadium. A three-time All-American, Harley's contributions to OSU’s football program are second-to-none. Ohio State’s rise coincided with his time at the university and led to the construction of Ohio Stadium, which has since been nicknamed appropriately, “The House That Harley Built.”  In 1950, Chic was picked as a First Team All-American for the first half of the 20th century by the Associated Press and was also voted one of 44 charter members inducted into the inaugural 1951 College Football Hall of Fame class. This figure stands 7" tall and has some noticeable paint that has chipped away on the back as well as the helmet.
