Player of the Year: Roman Gabriel's Football Journal [*SIGNED*], Gabriel, Roman, with Bob Oates
1 Gabriel, Roman, with Bob Oates Player of the Year: Roman Gabriel's Football Journal [*SIGNED*]
New York/Cleveland The World Publishing Company 1970 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Very Good- dj Illustrated by (dj photos) James Flores Signed by Author
[solid copy, a bit of wear to covers at top and bottom edges, light offsetting to endpapers, light soiling to top page edges; jacket lightly soiled and spotted both internally and externally, and a previous owner saw fit to "reinforce" it with scotch tape along the top and bottom edges]. (B&W photographs) INSCRIBED ("To John") and SIGNED by the author on the ffep. Gabriel, the All-Pro quarterback for the Los Angeles Rams -- (an interlude, while you try to remember when the Rams played in L.A., or when any pro football team played in L.A., for that matter) -- "opens his diary and invites you to see the inner workings for a top man on a top team hot on a winning streak that looks as though it will go on forever." Yeah, well, it didn't: the book chronicles the Rams' 1969 season, which was humming along just fine until they lost the last three games of the regular season and their first playoff game, before administering a 31-0 stomping to the Dallas Cowboys, back in the days when the two playoff losers got to square off for third place.

New York Simon & Schuster (c.2004) 0-7432-6619-6 / 9780743266192 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dj Illustrated by (dj design) Brad Foltz 
[nice tight clean copy, appears unread, a couple of extremely light dents in top edges of covers; jacket shows only some very minor wrinkling at top of rear panel]. (B&W photographs) Memoir by the Heisman Trophy-winning running back who went on to become an NFL star for the Green Bay Packers, under legendary coach Vince Lombardi. However, his off-the-field partying, girl-chasing and gambling eventually caught up with him, and at the height of his career he was caught up in a gambling scandal and suspended from the NFL for a year. (This was a very big deal, I seem to remember -- I was ten years old at the time -- although in the context of the peccadilloes of some of today's top athletes, Hornung's transgressions seem kind of quaint. At any rate, he owned up to his misconduct, was reinstated -- reportedly thanks to heavy lobbying by Lombardi -- and went on to play three more seasons for the Packers.)
