DESCRIPTION

In celebration of 150 years of college football and 100 years of the National Football League, Assouline presents Football: The Impossible Collection—The 100 Most Legendary Moments in History. This is the first book to offer a comprehensive view of both college and professional football, a curated selection of 100 historic firsts, unforgettable upsets and routs, amazing plays and unusual happenings, such as when a college marching band prematurely took the field, interrupting the incredible final touchdown of a rivalry game.

Selected by noted sports journalist Michael MacCambridge, Football: The Impossible Collection showcases the 100 most exciting, memorable and significant events that shaped this American sport, from 1869 when Princeton played Rutgers in the very first college game, the first legal forward pass in 1906, the Ice Bowl, the Immaculate Reception and the Hail Mary, to the 2018 record-scoring 54-51 shootout between the Rams and Chiefs on Monday Night Football.

Illustrated with dynamic photographs, rarely seen archival documents and vintage memorabilia, this collectible handcrafted Ultimate Collection volume is presented in a unique faux pigskin clamshell case, the quintessential compendium for fans of college and professional football.
