Vintage Team-Signed GPC by the 1943 Ohio State football team. This came from a very large autograph collection that belonged to Eddie Weems Jr., who was the Pepperdine Hall of Fame track coach in the 1930's and 1940's. Weems sent a request to Columbus asking for the 1943 squad to sign his postcard following their National Championship in 1942.  The team obliged and it was signed by Matthew Brown, Lee Cunningham, Albert Williams, George Neff, Joe Stora, Russ Thomas, Dick Meinke, Jim Marker, Dean Sensenbaugher, Cy Souders, Jerry Fedderson, Gene Slough, Jack Redd, Paul Davis, Bud Kessler, Jack Dugger, Glenn Oliver, John Stungis, Ray Stackhouse, John Swartzbaugh, Don Kay, Howard Tiefke, Ronnie Hefflinger, Bob McQuade, William Miller, Bill Willis, Gene Clark, Ernie Plank, Bill Dunivant, and Ernie Parks.

Jack Dugger, Russ Thomas, and Cy Souders were all First Team All-Americans at Ohio State. 

In the bottom right, the notation was added, "FB OHIO ST. '43".  Most of these autographs were written in graphite pencil with a few fountain pen signatures as well.
