Vintage 1957 action photograph of rookie Jim Brown from the Cleveland Browns as he runs the ball toward the photographer with a look of determination on his face that would define his career. His most famous image ever taken, this was used to make his 1958 Topps rookie card and is from 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 who retouched the image and re-released it) it presents extremely well and bold. Photo has some paper loss on the bottom, but otherwise it is almost perfect. An exciting discovery that is a nice alternative to a six-figure Type 1, this is encapsulated by PSA as a Type 3 (vintage print).
