On October 21, 1956 at Wrigley Field in Chicago, Johnny Unitas fumbled, tripped and threw a "pick 6" in his NFL debut. However, his less than stellar debut as a fill-in was not a precursor to his Hall of Fame career to follow. The offered game program and ticket stub from the contest is a sterling remembrance of the humble beginnings of "The Golden Arm". Included are 1.) dated 10/21/56 Colts vs. Bears program (presents VG, with deference to cover writing) and 2.) dated 10/21/56 Upper Box ticket stub (presents EX, with exception to slight pencil mark).
