Ed Bagdon’s 1949 Outland Trophy Sold at Auction

Ed Bagdon's 1949 Outland Trophy sold for $8,652 (including buyer's premium) in auction this week. The Outland Trophy is the yearly award given to the nation's best college football interior lineman by the Football Writers Association of America. The award was first given in 1946 as a plaque and in 1990, the award was changed to a trophy.

The sale of the trophy was organized by Bagdon's son, Dave. The money raised will be provided to senior citizens near his home in Hesperia, California. Dave hoped the plaque would sell for a bit more but was content with the amount as it was still enough to help several people. At this time, there are no plans to sell any more of his father's memorabilia.

A Michigan State Alumni, Bagdon turned his strong college career into a seventh-round selection by the Chicago Cardinals. Bagdon spent three seasons in the NFL and also played for the Washington Redskins. Bagdon passed away in 1990 at the age of 64.

The 1949 Outland Trophy was sold through Nate D. Sanders Auctions.

  1. THIS IS A TOTALLY BOLD FACED LIE. DAVE BAGDON SOLD THIS TROPHY (WITHOUT THE KNOWLEDGE OF FAMILY MEMBERS) FOR HIS OWN PERSONAL GAIN. HE HAS NO INTENTION OF HELPING ANYONE IN NEED! HE IS A LIAR AND A THEIF WHO HAS NEVER HELD A JOB LONGER THAN A MONTH AND HAS ALWAYS LIVED OFF HIS MOTHER. THIS IS SUPPOSEDLY A GROWN MAN IN HIS 60′s. THIS IS SO SAD!!!!!!

  2. MY NAME IS EDWARD HUGH BAGDON, ED BAGDON IS MY FATHER. SPEAKING FOR MY FATHER, I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THAT THE SALE OF THE OUTLAND AWARD WAS DONE WITHOUTH THE KNOWLEDGE OF ANY OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS, BY DAVE BAGDON. DAVE SOLD MY FATHERS AWARD, FOR HIS OWN SELFISH PERSONAL GAIN. THERE ARE NO CHARIETIES TO GAIN FROM THIS SALE, AS HE HAS CLAIMED. DAVE IS A FRAUD, AN A FAKE. WE ARE ALL SADENED BY THE DISGRACE HE HAS BROUGHT UPON THE FAMILY, AN ESPECIALLY MY FATHERS HONOR. SADLY, HE HAS NO UNDERSTANDING OF THE PAIN AN EMOTIONAL GRIEF HE, AN THE SALE OF MY FATHERS PRESTIEGIOUS AWARD, HAS PUT IN THE HEARTS OF MY FAMILY. HE BLOCKS ALL COMMUNICATATION EFFORTS TO MY MOTHER, AN IS TO MUCH OF A COWARD TO FACE ANY OF US WITH AN EXPLANATION OF SUCH A COWARDLY ACT. IF THE PURCHASER OF THIS AWARD WOULD DO ME THE KINDNESS OF CONTACTING ME, PLEASE CONTACT ME AT (760) 669-8668.
