Rare 1946-47 bert c. pigott illinois football paddle - old hickory - super rare
1946-47 BERT C. PIGGOTT ILLINOIS FOOTBALL OLD HICKORY MADE PADDLE. Although I cannot find the story behind this paddle in specific (which were mainly used as paddles in Fraternities back in the day) the stories of Bert C. Piggott are many. Aside from Rev. Jesse Jackson being very outspoken on all of the positives that Mr. Piggott had, he was a football head coach from 1957-67 at North Carolina A&T with a record of 56-39-4 and a football player at University of Illinois on the '47 winning Rose Bowl team that defeated UCLA 45-14. His accomplishments outside of football were many. The condition of the paddle and it's markings can be seen in the pictures. There is some finish loss and some clear tape wrapped around the end. Measures 20" long. Even though my knowledge of the "story" behind this paddle is non existent, I am pretty confident there may not be another one anywhere. Who knows, this may be a museum quality piece. Please add $14.00 for shipping in the lower 48 United States only. If you have any questions please ask before purchasing. Sold as is. Thank you.
