1961 Sweeping action photograph of the final game ever played by Heisman Trophy winner and number one draft pick Ernie Davis of the Syracuse Orangemen. It was at this event that Davis signed his contract with Cleveland. Davis looked to be at the top of his game but would soon be diagnosed with Leukemia and this was his FINAL game as an active player on the gridiron! Issued by the United Press and stamped on the back with the pre-zip code stamp on the back cementing its status as a "Vintage 1" original. Condition and quality make this a perfect 10/10 and it ranks among the finest images of Davis ever offered for sale!
