Large 1958 action photograph of rookie Jim Brown from the Cleveland Browns as he runs the ball. His most famous image ever taken, this was used to make his 1958 Topps rookie card and the reverse carries the stamp of the photographer Henry Barr. There are only a handful of originals of this image known to exist and despite being subtly off a duplicate negative (by the original photographer) it presents extremely well and bold. Photo has some handling wear and creasing but it is an exciting new discovery making tis debut here for the first time ever!
