A Hopalong Cassady signed International League baseball along with an empty Limited Edition 50th Anniversary Arabica Bean Coffee tin. 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. After his football days, Cassady helped coach the Columbus Clippers AAA team. He was inducted into the College Hall of Fame in 1979 and Ohio State's Varsity O Hall of Fame in 1977.

Cassady provided a black sharpie signature on the sweet spot of the baseball which is dated August 30, 1998 above the seams.  This Limited Edition tin was released in 2005, fifty years after Cassady won Ohio State's third Heisman Trophy.
