Description



During his first four years in the NFL, Roman Gabriel split quarterbacking duties for the Los Angeles Rams with Zeke Bratkowski and Bill Munson. Gabriel's breakout season came in 1966, when new head coach George Allen named him the Rams starter. Recall Gabriel's promotion with this 10/3/66 Sports Illustrated Vol. 25, #14 issue. Depicted in game action on the front cover of this edition, Gabriel paid immediate dividends, leading the Rams to their first winning season since the '50s. Published during Sports Illustrated's condition sensitive "dark print era", this handsome magazine has received a grade of (7.0) from CGC, placing it in the second position on the certification service's Census report, as "1/1" with one higher.
