Auction of George Blanda memorabilia highlights footballer’s career

George Yakubisin got a kick, so to speak, whenever he passed a George Blanda Boul­evard sign along Route 119 through Youngwood honoring his late uncle, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Blanda’s admirers now can browse or bid on 50 pieces of sports memorabilia owned by the football legend — he played for the Oakland Raiders, University of Kentucky and Youngwood High School — that his family put up for auction.
