Vince Lombardi on Football (1973)

One book (or set of books) you should have in your football library is Vince Lombardi on Football. This was released first in a two-volume boxed set, and then later with both combined in one bound volume (cover seen above). The amount of football knowledge contained in this book is staggering, and even if you don’t read anything, the collection of period photos is outstanding. You won’t be disappointed after purchasing this!

This is just one sample of the fine photography throughout. It took three Vikings to stop FB Jim Taylor in this Vernon Biever shot.
