Ara Parseghian is among the legendary names in the history of Notre Dame football — a program with plenty of legends — but you wouldn’t necessarily know that by looking at trading cards.

John Jenkins told The Associated Press about the coach who died Wednesday at age 94. “Whenever we asked for Ara’s help at Notre Dame, he was there.”
