A piece of OSU/Michigan history at The Super Auction

A unique piece of OSU verse Michigan history will be sold at the inaugural Super Auction on February 28, 2009 at the Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds in Ann Arbor, MI. A football program from the 1952 game between OSU and Michigan played in Ohio Stadium is being sold by Auctioneer Jade Montrie of Montrie Auction & Estate Service L.L.C.

"This program and the game it was sold at represents Woody Hayes' first victory over Michigan and came at a critical time in the young coach's career," commented Montrie. "This item is a must have for any college football or Big Ten Football collector."

Woody Hayes was one of the most well known coaches in college football and coached at Ohio State from 1951 - 1978 and along with Bo Schembechler built the OSU/Michigan rivalry into one of the greats in all of sports.

The football program is one of over 1400 items that are scheduled to cross the block at The Super Auction. The paper and ephemera session (one of fifteen in the Auction) represents a speciality area of Montrie's larger auction, estates, and Real Estate business.

"This is great item to have in The Super Auction because it is both interesting and accessible to a number of collectors," added Peter Gehres, Super Auction assistant manager. "Given that we have auctioneers from Ann Arbor, Michigan and Columbus, Ohio participating in The Super Auction the subject of football is often discussed and this program brings everything full circle.
