Acerca de


"Neil Leifer, Guts and Glory: The Golden Age of American Football, 1958-1978" presents the most memorable moments since the birth of pro football.It includes the best of sports photographer Neil Leifer's 10,000 rolls of football pictures, including hundreds of previously unpublished images. Presented in a custom slipcase and limited to 100 numbered copies signed by the artist, this Art Edition comes with one of two chromogenic prints. Books 1-100 are accompanied by the chromogenic print "Johnny Unitas," 1964.In 1958, sports photographer Neil Leifer took the picture that remains one of his most famous to this day. The day he got the shot - Alari Ameche's game-winning "Sudden Death" touchdown - was Leifer's 16th birthday. This game, called "The Greatest Ever Played," signaled football's emergence as America's new national pastime; formerly half-empty stadiums welcomed sold-out crowds seemingly overnight while football surpassed pro baseball and college football in national television ratings. Starting then, on any given Sunday Leifer was most likely shooting a football game somewhere in America. His 1961 photo of legendary Giants quarterback Y. A. Tittle dropping back to pass landed Leifer his first cover for "Sports Illustrated" and cemented his close connection to the sport.While best known for his iconic photograph of Muhammad Ali towering over a fallen Sonny Liston, and for the enormous diversity of subjects he covered in and out of the sports world, it is his football pictures Leifer considers his best. This collection represents the best of his best, culled from over 10,000 rolls of film on the sport, including hundreds of previously unpublished pictures. It's impossible to conceive of Peyton Manning hovering over an impromptu wood fire on the sidelines during a blizzard, but Leifer captured Tittle's Giants doing exactly that during the coldest game in his living memory (the 1962 Championship in New York, a game "far colder than the famous Ice Bowl"). From Vince Lombardi's Green Bay Packers dynasty to the Miami Dolphins' perfect season in 1972 to the Minnesota Vikings' terrifying Front Four - the "Purple People Eaters" - they're all here; and so is Bobby Layne, a holdout from the pre-face mask "leatherhead" days.Following an introduction assembled from the best football columns of the era by famed sports columnist Jim Murray, this collection is divided into four chapters: "On Any Sunday" is Leifer's homage to the game. "The Legends" includes heroes like Johnny Unitas, Jim Brown, Terry Bradshaw, Joe Namath, Dick Butkus, Frank Gifford, and Mean Joe Greene. "The Coaches" delves into the victories on and off the field of immortal coaches Vince Lombardi, John Madden, Tom Landry, Weeb Ewbank, and others. Finally, "The Big Game" traces the major championship games from 1958 through Superbowl XII. The in-depth captions put the images into their historical context, making the book highly accessible and informative.

About the Author:

By 1960, at age 17, native New Yorker Neil Leifer, had his first pictures published in Sports Illustrated and he was on his way. He went on to create over 200 covers for SI, Time and People; and photographed 15 Olympic Games, 4 World Cups, 17 Kentucky Derbies, 15 Masters Tournaments, countless World Series, the first 12 Super Bowls, and every major heavyweight championship title boxing match since Floyd Patterson fought Ingemar Johansson in 1960, as well as Muhammad Ali's entire career. Today he produces and directs films, in addition to the occasional photo shoot. Jim Murray was a Hartford, Connecticut, native and 1943 Trinity College graduate. He worked at the New Haven Register and Los Angeles Herald-Examiner, and was TIME Inc.'s Hollywood correspondent, a founding father of Sports Illustrated, and sports columnist for the Los Angeles Times for 37 years. Murray was inducted into Cooperstown's Baseball Hall of Fame writers' wing in 1988 and won a Pulitzer Prize for Commentary in 1990. He died in 1998. Gabriel Schechter, a lifelong sports fanatic who idolized Willie Mays, Johnny Unitas, and Oscar Robertson, is a research associate at the National Baseball Hall of Fame. He is the author of four books, including This Bad Day in Yankees History.
