Limited Edition Book Salutes 100 Legendary Moments of College and NFL Football

Class up your coffee table with this oversized, football-obsessed book.


In celebration of 150 years of college football and 100 years of the National Football League, publishing house Assouline has launched Football: The Impossible Collection—The 100 Most Legendary Moments in History

The massive coffee table book is illustrated with a curated selection of 100 historic firsts, unforgettable upsets, amazing plays and bizarre happenings, as selected by sports journalist Michael MacCambridge, author of America’s Game: The Epic Story of How Pro Football and editor of the ESPN College Football Encyclopedia.

Football: The Impossible Collection showcases the most significant events that shaped this uniquely American sport, including when Princeton played Rutgers in the very first college game in 1869, the first legal forward pass in 1906, the Ice Bowl, the Immaculate Reception, and even that 2018 record-scoring, 54-51 shootout between the Rams and Chiefs on Monday Night Football.

Illustrated with dynamic photographs, rare archival documents and vintage memorabilia, this 200-page collectible handcrafted volume comes in a unique faux pigskin clamshell case, and is described by Assouline as a “quintessential compendium for fans of college and professional football.”
