Gift I'd Like to Keep

I bought his card to give to my wife's father who's both a Notre Dame and Bears fan.  I'd like to keep this 1951 Bowman for myself but at least I have the scan.

Johnny, who will turn 90 on January 4, 2015 is currently the oldest living Heisman Trophy winner.
 I love the bear carrying the football.

If you're from Chicago and are as old as I am the name Lujack makes you think of the legendary disc jockey, Larry Lujack.  No coincidence.  According to Wikipedia, Larry  "changed his last name to that of his football idol".

  1. VERY cool card. I love '50s Bowman, baseball more but the football cards are beautiful as well.
