I found this gem in my Grandfathers closet


I almost passed out when I found this. It was rolled up in a cardboard tube and I took it the next say to have it framed under UV protected glass. I have no intention to sell this but would love to know what it's worth.

Priceless man...he passed away this year and was a huge LSU fan. He probably forgot he had it.

My guess is he rolled it up in December 1959 when the 1960 calendar came out. Probably never saw light until this year

That is a great piece. Save it and pass it down in the family. I would love to have it.

What's really cool is that the calendar is on November. He probably tore off the October the day after Billy Cannon's famous run that occurred October 31, 1959, then put it away.
