From 1957-1965, an unstoppable freight train out of Georgia ran through the NFL, leaving a trail of would-be tacklers buried in the turf. This train goes by the name Jim Brown, who made a lot of news in his day. The only running back to average more than 100 yards per game for an entire career, Brown led the NFL in rushing for eight of the nine seasons he suited up for the Cleveland Browns. Though he played in a relatively modest total of 118 games, Brown still ranks 11th all-time in career rushing yards, and all of those who have passed him, have had significantly more playing time.
One instance of Brown making news takes the bidding field, in the form of this 11/26/65 issue of TIME magazine. Published in the final season of Brown's record-setting career, this nicely preserved magazine sports a compelling art illustration on the front cover. Brown has added a bold ("10") strength blue felt-tip pen autograph, along with the inscription "HOF 71". CGC has encapsulated this prized publication with a grade of (5.0), and a Tri-Star hologram sticker affixed at bottom right, stands as certification for the autograph.
