The independent voice of Notre Dame Athletics

  • Collecting the Irish

    by Mike Coffey

    A few weeks ago, we here at NDN were contacted by J. R. Wainwright, long-time sports illustrator and Notre Dame fan. Over the years, Mr. Wainwright has cultivated an extensive collection of Notre Dame-related art and memorabilia, including his own work depicting all our Heisman Trophy winners, all-American players, and famous coaches. The illustrations on posters, prints, guidebooks, programs, and wall-boxes, along with negatives, number in the hundreds.

    For various and sundry reasons, Mr. Wainwright is looking to sell his collection. However, he has no interest in selling it piecemeal, and would prefer it to be purchased en masse by the right Notre Dame fan who is looking for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to begin or enhance their ND collection by giving his the good home it deserves. He contacted us in the hope we could hook him up with that fan.

    If you’re interested in hearing more, you can contact us via this link and we’ll be happy to fill in the details.
