A rare 4.5-inch glass that features an Ohio State player with the jersey number 40 depicting Ohio State's Hopalong Cassady in Red, inside a gray Block O.  On the reverse side is a picture of Ohio Stadium before the South Stands were installed with Ohio State Buckeyes underneath. Cassady was a member of Ohio State's 1954 National Championship team and was Ohio State's third Heisman winner in 1955. Hop would go on to an eight-year career in the NFL, highlighted by a NFL Championship with the Detroit Lions in 1957. He was inducted into the College Hall of Fame in 1979 and Ohio State's Varsity O Hall of Fame in 1977.
