Ron Kramer: Wolverines' MVA
Dick Mayer
Original sports cartoon

1956. Ron Kramer was a three-sport star athlete at the University of Michigan at mid-century. In basketball he scored a record-breaking 1,124 points (since surpassed). In track he was a talented high jumper (his weight 230 pounds). But this Dick Mayer cartoon spotlights his talent as a collegiate football player for the Wolverines. He was named All-American his senior year and still is considered one of the greatest Michigan ends ever. His coach Bennie Oosterbaan described his blocking and tackling ability as the most valuable asset to the Michigan squad. Others call Kramer the greatest Michigan end since Oosterbaan. By the time he graduated from college, he had earned nine letters in three sports!

In this cartoon published as Kramer was capping his collegiate career, cartoonist Dick Mayer compares him to previous Michigan football standouts including his coach Bennie Oosterbaan.

In his NFL career, Kramer established himself as a standout playing 10 seasons ? seven with the Green Bay Packers and three with the Detroit Lions.

Original cartoon by Dick Mayer, the Detroit Free Press and later appearing 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: Small rubber cement stain on right edge. Two artist correction sketches pasted on at top right. Otherwise fine condition.

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.
