1962 Jim Brown Signed Neil Leifer Original Oversized Photograph.

Using his free admission, he would then position himself on the field with his camera. On his 16th birthday, Leifer caught several images of the historic winning touchdown during the famed 1958 NFL Championship Game, which he later sold to "Sports Illustrated."
