Original Description:
1939 ORIGINAL NILE CLARKE KINNICK JR. HEISMAN MEMORIAL TROPHY AWARD PROGRAM
Heritage Auctions Testimony: 
Before his 1939 Heisman-winning season, Nile Kinnick scribed his prophecy to one of the most important seasons in collegiate football history: "For three years, nay for fifteen years, I have been preparing for this last year of football. I anticipate becoming the roughest, toughest all-around back yet to hit this conference. I'm looking ...forward to showing [Iowa head coach Eddie] Anderson what a real football player looks like - so hold your hats." 
Here we find tangible proof of Kinnick's resolve, a collecting Grail fittingly cloaked in shimmering gold that was originally issued to an attendee of the December 6, 1939 banquet at Manhattan's Downtown Athletic Club. On this date, in this place, Kinnick would become the fifth member of a brotherhood of gridiron excellence that now includes many of the greatest names in the history of the sport. 
 However this joyous occasion would see tragedy trailing close behind, assigning to Kinnick the gloomy distinction as the most valuable autograph in the collecting subgenre. Three and a half years after his Heisman Trophy presentation, Kinnick's F4F Wildcat sunk to the bottom of the Gulf of Paria off the coast of Venezuela during a World War II training exercise, taking its pilot down with it. 
Kinnick memorabilia finds the hobby's widest gap between supply and demand. 
Presented is the exemplar that stands atop the hierarchy of that woefully insufficient population, from the evening that Kinnick took ownership of John Heisman's hefty bronze prize. 
This piece is unfortunately not signed by Nile himself but still holds value in the extreme demand for memorabilia related to that fateful night. 
SHIPPING/INSURANCEProgram will be carefully enclosed in airtight guard in a heavily padded envelope. I will be purchasing insurance after sale for shipping and will be offering FREE shipping. 
THANK YOU!!
