Doc Blanchard teamed up with Glenn Davis to form college football's most honored backfield combination while at Army. Blanchard and Davis became the only members of the same backfield to become three-time consensus All-Americans and Heisman Trophy winners. During his three seasons at Army, Blanchard never played on a losing team going 27-0-1. In 1944, Army scored 56 points a game as the Cadets won the first of back-to-back national championships. The following season Blanchard won the Heisman Trophy and Maxwell Award. He also became the first football player to win the Sullivan Award as America's top amateur athlete. In a 28 game career he scored 38 touchdowns, leading the nation in scoring during his Heisman Trophy winning 1945 season. Blanchard also played linebacker on defense and handled the Army kicking duties. This is the only known example from one of Army’s famed running backs during the 1940’s and is being publicly offered for the first time. On the crotch piece of the black durene jersey is the MacGregor Goldsmith manufacturer’s tag size “44”. Adjacent is the Alex Taylor & Co. distributor’s tag and a washing instructions tag. The player number “35” is on the front and back sewn on gold tackle twill numbers. Numerous beautiful team repairs are seen throughout including on the front, back, right sleeve and shoulders. This incredibly rare jersey was originally sourced 40 years ago from a major heisman trophy collector and has not seen the light of day since. This jersey is being offered publicly for the first time and is properly tagged, was presented to us as game-used and in our opinion shows outstanding use.
