George Ireland signed 3x5 index card Document Loyola 1963 NCAA Champs & Notre Dame

The highlight of Ireland's coaching career occurred in 1963 when he guided the Loyola Ramblers to the national collegiate championship. Ireland's team, led by Jerry Harkness and Les Hunter, compiled a 23-2 regular season record and finished first in the country in scoring. They defeated Tennessee Tech 111-42 in the first round of the NCAA Tournament which is still the largest margin of victory in an NCAA tournament game. The 1963 Loyola team also broke racial barriers by being the first NCAA Division I team to have four African American players in the everyday line-up. He passed away in 2001.

Offered is a 3x5 index card that he signed and filled out in green ink.  This is basically a signed document with his career highlights.  On the back of the card is a stamped date of March 1975 when the collector received this piece in the mail.
