Original 1955 photograph of young Notre Dame football star Paul Hornung as he soars through the air and shows the form that would eventually land on his 1957 Topps rookie football card two years later. One of his earliest images we have ever seen, this is stamped on the back and there is a concrete date of when this was used for publication (Oct 10, 1955) and it even mentions his upcoming game the next week against Michigan State! Condition is perfect and the quality is quite nice for a wire photo. A rare image that pre-dates his rookie football card by two full years!
