This is an official reproduction of the of The Advocate's January 2, 1959 Sports page celebrating LSU's 7-0 victory over Clemson in the Sugar Bowl. The text is clear so you can actually read about the game, although not every word and image is perfect - rightfully so due to the age of the original newspaper.
The top photo shows All-American Billy Cannon carrying a handoff and the bottom photo shows Cannon throwing the game winning pass
This official reproduction was purchased through a company that has the rights to reprint the Advocate's vintage front pages. This is the ultimate addition to any LSU collection and you probably will not see this item offered anywhere else around town. Geaux Tigers!!!
