View Catalog

Description

1962 Jim Brown Signed Neil Leifer Original Oversized Photograph. As a young New York city native, famed photograph Neil Leifer gained free admission to Giants football games by pushing wheelchairs of handicapped fans into the stadium. 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." Editors liked his worked so much, they quickly picked up the young prodigy as a full-time photographer.

Offered here is an original 1990's print, featuring Jim Brown during the Browns vs. 49ers 1962 meeting. Signed in Mint black sharpie by Brown and Leifer, this piece is hand numbered at "56/350." One of the most attractive images from the gridiron, this piece is just begging to be displayed in a nice frame at the home of the lucky winning bidder. Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. LOA from Lieberman Labs (authenticating the print as an original).
