1952 Dallas Texans Autograph

My other Dallas Texans Autograph from the CSA Show was Gino Marchetti.

Gino is a Colts Hall of Famer that played on the 1952 Dallas Texans a team. Gino and fellow HOFer Art Donovan played for the Texans in '52 before they moved.

Gino gave a real nice signature. This time, I used a silver paint pen instead of a sharpie. The silver paint pen has a bit more metallic in it and it seems to stand out a little better. He signed his name under Art Donovan's autograph which I obtained last year in Canton, OH. This helmet has the plastic face mask like Donovan wore in '52 and during other times in his career.

If you ever get the chance to get Art Donovan's autograph, ask him about the 1952 Texans! I did last year in Canton and he went on for about 10 minutes about how bad they were, but were still able to beat George Halas' Bears in Akron, OH.
