    Ronald Reagan "Knute Rockne" Football Cleats. Pair of costume football shoes with mud cleats worn by Ronald Reagan in his memorable role of George "The Gipper" Gipp in the classic 1940 biopic, Knute Rockne All American. Many actors, including William Holden, John Wayne, Robert Young, and Robert Cummings, were considered for the role, but only Dennis Morgan and Reagan tested for it; ultimately, it wound up becoming one of Reagan's signature roles, along with King's Row and The Killers. The shoes are in Very Fine to Excellent condition, with a moderate amount of wear from use. An appealing item for movie and sports fans alike. C'mon bidders, go out and, ahem, win this one for the Gipper.
