For Ohio State collectors, the 1936 Ohio State-Michigan Game Program remains one of the most collected and hard-to-find in the rivalry. That's because the cover contains a sketch of a dog holding a football in his mouth as hostage from the players that surrounded him. The sketch was done by famous Ohio State alum, cartoonist and author James Thurber.  Thurber was one of the most popular humorists of his time with many of his works featured in The New Yorker.  

Ohio State dominated Michigan in this version of The Game, 21-0. It was the third straight shutout for Francis Schmidt's squad, bringing the combined three-game total to 93-0. This would also serve as the finale of Ohio State's quarterback Tippy Dye, who went out with a bang. He accounted for two touchdown passes on the day, and also returned a punt 55 yards to the Michigan six yard line.  The 56,277 that witnessed the game helped Ohio State set a new season-high attendance mark.

This program is in excellent condition and remains completely intact.
