Complete four-page issue of the November 2, 1935 The Ohio State Lantern's with the headline, "SCARLET, IRISH TO MEET BEFORE CROWD OF 80,000". The top of the page advertises the Rally for the student later that evening. Pictured is the iconic photo of All-American center Gomer Jones. Although Notre Dame had a miraculous comeback, this would go down as the first edition of "The Game of the Century!". A fantastic 88-year old piece that has withstood the test of time. It would look absolutely stunning if matted and framed for a Buckeye Room.
