Tippy Dye signed ticket stub from the 1934 Ohio State-Illinois game played Memorial Stadium in Champaign, Illinois.  Dye signed the back of the ticket in silver sharpie and added his uniform #50 and included a "Go Bucks!" inscription above.

William H.H. "Tippy" Dye was the first Ohio State starting quarterback to defeat archrival Michigan three times. He did it at a time when Francis Schmidt was beginning his tenure at OSU and introducing the Gold Pants tradition. Dye would earn a pair in the first three years they were issued. Between football, basketball, and baseball, he earned eight varsity letters for the Buckeyes.

Dye would go on to coach both basketball and football, including as an assistant coach for Paul Brown in Ohio State's 1942 National Championship season. He also coached Washington to their first ever trip to the Final Four on the hardwood. He signed this Album Page in blue ballpoint pen. Inducted into Ohio State's Varsity O Hall of Fame in 1984 for his contributions as both a player and coach.
