Ballpoint pen inscribed and signed black and white photograph of quarterback Bill Nelsen of the Cleveland Browns, circa early 1970's, the dedication reading "--Bob-- Best of luck in your future/your cousin Bill Nelsen". The photo measures 9 7/8" by 7". It is loose but protected in a simple inexpensive frame. Bill Nelsen (born 1941) was part of the 1962 national championship team at USC, and went on to a long career in pro football, as a player with the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cleveland Browns. A series of injuries shortened his playing career, but he stayed in the sport as a coach from 1972 to 1982. Included as bonus items are two 1960's Union Oil Company handout photos of Los Angeles baseball stars Sandy Koufax and Johnny Podres. These were used as "stuffing" behind the Bill Nelsen signed piece.
