[Program]: N.Y. Giants vs. Cleveland Browns. December 14, 1958

New York: Harry M. Stevens, 1958.

Price: $150.00

Softcover. First (and only?) edition. Stapled illustrated wrappers. Small quarto. 32pp. Illustrated. Split and small chip at the top of the spine, and a previous owner has written: "Tie for League lead! Giants 13 Browns 10 in snow - most exciting sports event I ever saw!" A week later the Giants and Browns met in a rematch n the Eastern Conference playoff game where the Giants defeated the Browns 10-0, and then two weeks later lost what is widely regarded as the greatest football game ever played, the first N.F.L. Championship game to go into sudden death overtime, the subject of a recent book (*The Best Game Ever: Giants vs. Colts, 1958* by Mark Bowden, 2008), and one which, to my eternal chagrin, the Colts won.
