Although Jim Brown deserved it a few years earlier, his teammate Ernie Davis from Syracuse would become the first black player to win the Heisman Trophy in 1961. Here the man known as "The Express" poses with the trophy that was symbolic of the best player in college football but in reality, it meant so much more in the era of the Civil Rights movement. Condition and quality are both outstanding and this is one of the only examples we have ever seen in any form.
