Make the Syracuse to Cleveland connection with this 1962 Type I photo of Jim Brown and Ernie Davis. These gridiron legends followed similar paths, with both starring as running backs for Syracuse University and then transitioning to NFL with the Cleveland Browns. While Brown went on to become the greatest running back in pro football history, Davis tragically fell victim to leukemia, dying within a year of this photo being taken. The man who captured this shot of the intended dream backfield pairing is longtime Cleveland Plain Dealer photographer Ron Kuntz. This crisp 7x9 photo is very impressive, reporting in (NM) condition with a clean, bright and glossy surface. Though photos of Brown and Davis together are not rare, we could not find another example of this particular scene, indicating it is potentially an unpublished shot. Reverse has a Kuntz credit stamp.
