THE GOLDEN ARM
Johnny Unitas, 1958
A true NFL classic, from The Greatest Game Ever Played! This amazing poster features legendary sports photographer Robert Riger's amazing photograph from Overtime of the 1958 NFL Championship Game at New York's Yankee Stadium, as none other than the greatest quarterback of all-time, Johnny Unitas, unloads a long pass in the chaos of the moment. With a golden arm and an unshakeable will, Unitas marched his Baltimore Colts 80 yards downfield, and won the game with a handoff to Alan Ameche for the win. This spectacular image, from early in the sudden-death, championship-winning drive, has it all: old-school style; self-sacrificing offensive linesmen (Art Spinney, Buzz Nutter, and George Preas), exhausted Giants defenders (a leaping Jim Katcavage, and a less-than-active Dick Modzelewski), a crowd sitting on pins-and-needles in the background, and a QB who was in the process of making history and sealing his destiny. With rare, original hall-of-fame photography by Robert Riger, and a slick white-bordered design printed on high-quality heavy gallery stock, this is a beautiful work of photographic sports art that belongs in a nice frame and a prominent place on the wall of any true football fan. A true classic, perfect for home, office, or football locker room!
