Estimate: $600.00 +
Sold Price: $428.40 (includes buyer's premium)


Amazing 10K gold football charm presented to Harvard University football coach John Yovicsin in honor of the miraculous 1968 Harvard Crimson and Yale Bulldogs football rivalry game. Made by the JMF Co., the charm measures approximately 1″ in length and features engraved text to each panel denoting the year, “1968,” Harvard’s final record, “8-0-1,” the recipient, “J. M. Yovicsin, Coach,” and the score, “H-29 Y-29,” embellished with red and blue enamel. Also included is a gold-filled Ivy League Championship disc charm, .75″ in diameter, made by Koch Co., with one side featuring a red enamel “H” over leaf with raised text, “Ivy League Championship,” and opposite side engraved with the recipient’s name: “1968 Football, J. M. Yovicsin, Coach.” In fine condition, with noticeable fading to engravings.

Trailing all game to the highly touted Brian Dowling-led Yale Bulldogs, the Harvard football team mustered 16 unanswered points in the closing 42 seconds of regulation to earn a magical 29-29 tie in the 1968 season's final game. The impact of Harvard's moral victory inspired the next day's Harvard Crimson student newspaper to print the famous headline 'Harvard Beats Yale, 29-29.' The game has since been deemed the best in the rivalry's 142-year-old history, and one of college football's most storied and legendary draws.
