Fair Catch Returns
Willard Mullin
Original sports cartoon

1951. The NCAA traditionally is trying to protect student athletes and collegiate athletic programs. In 1950 the NCAA Rules Committee abolished the ?fair catch? rule in collegiate football. One year later it was back in the rule book because of the demands by their members. Also in 1951 enforcement of the ?Sanity Code? which regulated scholarships for athletes became an issue and the NCAA took steps to rework the rules to make scholarships and recruiting more enforceable. Willard Mullin ties these two decisions into this cartoon.

Original cartoon by Willard Mullin, NY World Telegram & Sun and later in The Sporting News. It is from this original drawing that the image was reproduced in the newspaper.

Original cartoon, ink and pencil on coquille board signed by artist.

Condition report: Some edge stains around cartoon. Rubber cement bleed in word balloon paste-over at bottom center. Art matted in brown with mortise at center bottom to match drawing. Mat covers small portion of bottom of artwork

Provenance: This original cartoon is from the personal collection of Hugo A. Autz, long-time editor of The Sporting News during the late 1950s and '60s who had access to the best sports cartoons during the Golden Age of Sports Cartooning.
