Incredible postcard from October 29, 1904 Michigan versus Wisconsin game. The postcard features an image of Michigan's legendary Willie Heston, one of college football's early stars. Heston would score 20 touchdowns during the 1904 season; two in this game. Michigan's 1904 team was one of head coach Fielding Yost's "Point-a-Minute" teams. The 1904 team actually averaged a point scored every 50 seconds. The postcard has been used and is in fair but very presentable condition overall. Heston was selected by the Football Writers Association of America as the halfback for its all-time team for the first 50 years of the sport. University of Michigan coach Fielding H. Yost rated him as the greatest player of all-time and Notre Dame's Legendary Coach Knute Rockne claimed Heston was "The greatest back of all time". He was inducted into the College Football Hall-Of-Fame in 1953.
