I've posted the below photo for you. My wife doesn't allow me to display many sports pieces in our home. However this proudly sits on my office desk. It is an original signed painting by a legendary Army Football coach. Any guess who? Being a West Point grad I thought you may appreciate it.

Wow...you got me. My first thought was COL Red Blaik in his later days, but the signature doesn't match. Maybe Charles Daly, Lombardi, or Herman Hickman? Someone less famous? No idea....that's good trivia though.

It is by Charles Daly. After he retired he began painting landscapes. A few football coaches from this era have paintings available. I've seen Pop Warner and Robert Zuppke paintings pop up occasionally.

Nice! That signature is quite difficult to find. So, in a round about way, you have that one.

I don't understand why his signature is so tough. He lived a full life, was a mentor for many famous US Generals, wrote a football book, was actively involved in West Point and Harvard athletics. Yet I know of only two signatures in the hobby. I got a feeling most just don't know who he is, so the sigs stay buried.

Here’s a fantastic 13” x 11” original photograph of the championship 1894 Yale football team. Captained by 4x All-American Frank Hinkey, this team went 16-0 and outscored their opponents 485 to 13. For those interested in Frank Hinkey, please check out my museum website at www.frankhinkey.com.
