The Heisman Trophy is awarded each year to the greatest college player of that season by the Downtown Athletic Club of New York City. The trophy was originated in 1935 to honor “most valuable football player in the east” and was later renamed to honor John Heisman, the Club’s Athletic director. The helmet is signed by 20 Heisman trophy winners spanning from 1970’s-1990’s.
