6 card lot of 1942 National Champions from the 2005 TK Legacy Men Of The Scarlet And Gray Series.  Lot includes Gordon Appleby, Don Steinberg, Cy Souders, Bob Jabbusch, and Paul Priday. Also included is a Ohio State Archives card signed by Jack Graf (numbered 53/150). The Graf card was produced later by TK Legacy in 2008.

Under Hall of Fame coach Paul Brown, the Buckeyes went 9-1 in 1942 and won the school's first ever National Championship. Ohio State's only loss that year came in "The Bad Water Game" at Wisconsin when several Ohio State players fell ill after drinking stale water during the train ride north. In its biggest game of the season, the Buckeyes defeated archrival Michigan by two touchdowns.

Jack Graf starred as fullback on Paul Brown's first OSU team in 1941 and was voted the Big Ten Most Valuable Player.
