Chuck Bednarik Signed Photo

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $237

Iconic photo (modern print) capturing Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Chuck Bednarik standing over New York Giants running back Frank Gifford after Bednarik rendered him unconscious with a thunderous hit in the Eagles 17-10 victory at Yankee Stadium on November 20, 1960. This is one of the most well-known sports photos ever taken and the offered print is all the more significant due to the inscription penned by Bednarik. When our consignor met with Bednarik to have this photo signed, he asked Bednarik if he would write on the photo exactly what he was thinking at the time of the hit. Bednarik obliged, and inscribed the photo, "the f***in game is over - Chuck Bednarik." Both the inscription and signature have been executed in black Sharpie and grade "10." The photo (10 x 8 inches) features two Sports Illustrated proprietary labels on the reverse and is in Near Mint condition. This is certainly a one-of-a-kind Bednarik signed photo and one that would be welcome addition to any advanced football Hall of Fame autograph collection. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $200. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $237
