Description

A visionary innovator in both basketball and football, Stagg (1862-1965) was a 1951 charter inductee in the College Football Hall of Fame as both a player and coach—the only figure double-honored as such until the 1990s. Stagg's striking black-ink "9" inscription and signature on the first interior page reads, "To Bob Riss / With many good wishes from / Amos Alonzo Stagg / Aug - 25, 1939." There's also a nice frontispiece portrait inside. Condition of the 5-5/8 x 8-1/8 x 1-1/4" book is attractive EX overall with vibrant covers/spine and bold embossing. COA from PSA/DNA.
