Incredible 1957 photograph of the best running back in the world, but one that had still yet to play a single game in professional football as he put on his college "All Stars" jersey to play in a game against the New York Giants. In theory, Brown was still playing with the college team, but he was only a few months away from breaking into the NFL officially. This photo however marks his first game ever against NFL competition before his rookie season. Dated on the back and with several stamps, the photo has a tremendous use of black and white tones making Brown's figure really stand out. Simply a stunning piece of photography and one that is being offered here for the first time ever!
