An Earle Bruce signed commemorative tray from the 1980's between Ohio State and archrival Michigan. Pictured on this iconic tray was Ohio State's Earle Bruce and Michigan legend Bo Schembechler.  The former Ohio State coach signed by his picture adding "Go Bucks!" Bruce was the head coach at Ohio State from 1979-1987, winning at least nine games in eight of his nine seasons. He finished with a 5-4 record against the Wolverines, dramatically winning in Ann Arbor in 1987 after being fired by OSU earlier in the week.  Players wore headbands in support of Bruce and carried him off the field at Michigan Stadium after the 23-20 win. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2002.
