Front page of the October 5, 1924 Ohio State Journal's Sports Section with the headline, "STADIUM JINX IS BROKEN WHEN OHIO STATE WINS FROM PURDUE BY SCORE OF 7 TO 0". All-American Marty Karow led the Buckeyes to their first ever conference win in Ohio Stadium. Newspaper has a small rip that can be matted out along the top and it also has fold marks from being stored for almost 100 years. Newspaper is very unique and would look amazing framed up in any Buckeye Room!

This lot originates from the Tee Young Collection, captain of the 1924 Ohio State football team.  He passed away from colon cancer in 1973.  A percentage of the total sale of this lot will be donated to the Buckeye Cruise for Cancer in honor of Francis "Tee" Young.
