Four (4) index card lot of members of the 1942 Ohio State National Championship winning team. The lot includes All-Americans Gene Fekete, Cecil Souders, Tommy James, and Dante "Gluefingers" Lavelli. Ohio State's only loss that season came in "The Bad Water Game" at Wisconsin when several Ohio State players went ill after drinking stale water during the train ride north.

Led by brilliant performances by Les Horvath and Paul Sarringhaus, the Buckeyes went on to defeat the Wolverines by two touchdowns. They defeated Iowa Pre-Flight a week later to finish 9-1 and as Hall of Fame head coach Paul Brown helped Ohio State capture their first ever National Championship.
