A gift he'll love: In 1958 journalist Neil Leifer took the picture that remains one of his most famous to this day. The day he got the shot--Alan 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 baseball in national television ratings. Leifer's photographs, as seen in this book, document football's rise in popularity and some of the most incredible plays during that time.
