A signed 4x6 index card by Ohio State's first Heisman winner, Les Horvath. Horvath was a member of Ohio State's first national championship team in 1942 and won the Heisman Memorial Trophy Award two years later. He was inducted into the College Hall of Fame in 1966 and Ohio State's Varsity O Hall of Fame in 1977. The young autograph seeker pasted a photo of Horvath carrying the football against Michigan and wrote in pencil on the back, "Scoring from 1 yard line ending a 52 yard drive to Beat Michigan."  Horvath scored the second of two touchdowns he had on the day with 3:16 left in the fourth quarter as Ohio State came from behind to beat Michigan, 18-14, in 1944.  Horvath signed in the bottom right corner with black ballpoint pen.
