Johnny Unitas who played from the 1950s through the 1970s. He spent the majority of his career playing for the Baltimore Colts.

For 52 years he held the record for most consecutive games with a touchdown pass (which he set between 19561960), until New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees broke his long standing record on October 7, 2012. Unitas was the prototype of the modern era marquee quarterback with a strong passing game, media fanfare, and widespread popularity. He has been consistently listed as one of the greatest NFL players of all time. Johnny Unitas has hand signed this Official NFL Tagliabue Football with Best Wishes inscription.
