color photograph of Joe, signed with his name and number.
(8"x12") Here is what the Fighting Irish Football
Encyclopedia said about Mr. T: "One of the top-ranked quarterback
of all time for Notre Dame. Senior year ranks among the top individual
performances of any era. Had a great arm, quick feet, superb mobility,
fine grasp of reading downfield coverages, quick release, supreme
confidence, and toughness that belied his slim build.
He led Notre Dame to it's first bowl appearances since the 1925 Rose Bowl, against Texas in '70 and '71. In the 1971 Cotton Bowl, All-American Joe Thiesmann personally accounted for three scores in the first 16 1/2 minutes en route to a 24-11 victory.
