Fielding Yost Signed AUTO photo with his Michigan Football Team College Football HOF PSA/DNA LOA

Fielding Yost (D. 1946) assembled the most devastating teams in the history of football, the famed "Point-A-Minute" teams at the University of Michigan in the early 1900s. "Hurry Up" Yost was a deadly earnest individual with a purity of spirit which belied his high wit and unwillingness to accept defeat. But, his teams rarely lost, so it was not an all-too-common problem. In 25 years at the Wolverine helm, Yost compiled a 165-29- 10 record. Yost began his coaching career at Ohio Wesleyan in 1897, served one-season terms at Nebraska, Kansas, and Stanford. He took the Michigan reins in 1901, and promptly launched an incredible success story, bound in a Maize and Blue cover. In his first season at Ann Arbor, the Wolverines finished 11-0-0 and defeated Stanford, 49-0, in the inaugural Rose Bowl game. Not a single opponent scored upon Michigan that season. His teams - offensively brilliant, defensively unmatched - continued to dominate the game for the next 4 years. Michigan won 44 games, lost only to Chicago, 2-0, in 1905, and tied Minnesota, 6-6, in 1903. Through those five years (1901-1905), Michigan was 55-1-1, outscoring the opposition, 2821-42. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1951.

Offered is a 10” x  8” (approximate size) that Yost not only signed his name in black steel tipped pen, but wrote out the score of his very first Rose Bowl win Michigan 49 Stanford 0.  He is shown with his Championship Michigan Wolverines Football team celebrating on top of a carriage.

Incredible piece for the College Football Hall of Fame collector and Michigan fan!
