1956 Ernie Davis Elmira Free Academy Letterman Award with Actual Letter (Family LOA)
Though history remembers his football prowess, Ernie Davis was a multi-sport athlete at Elmira Free Academy, and here is his letterman certificate for basketball for the 1955-56 season. Certificate measures 8.5x11" with large blue "E" at center, and included is the actual felt-backed "E" to go on a letterman‚s jacket presented to Ernie as well. As a two-sport All-American coming out of Elmira, Davis was wooed by scholarship offers from many institutions before legendary running back Jim Brown coaxed him to play his collegiate ball at Syracuse, where he led the Orangemen to a football National Championship. Comes from Davis‚ nephew Reggie McLee with a signed LOA by him.
