Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: He played with a quiet confidence. Statistically he had few peers. Even now, almost fifty years after his first professional contest, his impressive body of work has withstood the test of time. He was Marshall Faulk before there was a Marshall Faulk.
