PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The Oregon Webfoots had Portland’s own Evert McNeely and Lauren Gale. Astoria native Robert Anet, a 5-foot-8 junior guard, played the part of the team’s captain. And who could forget about Urgel “Slim” Wintermute, the tallest of the Tall Firs at a towering 6-foot-8. 

Nearly 80 years later, you could get the whole crew. 

An original program from the 1939 National Championship — the inaugural NCAA basketball championship title game — between Oregon and Ohio State is being auctioned off by Lelands, a company that claims it was the first sports memorabilia house and card auction house in the world. 

The program started at a $300 bid, but after eight bids it grew to $3,570. 

Oregon won that game 46-33. 

This wasn’t the only inaugural championship Oregon and Ohio State faced off in. In 2015 the two schools played in the first College Football Playoff Championship. The Buckeyes got revenge, winning 42-20.
