As the Baltimore Sun reported back in 2006, Johnny U's NFL career with the Colts did not actually begin against the Bears (as Unitas himself had always claimed) but rather against the Lions two games earlier. The future legend threw an incomplete pass and an interception, with the silver lining of a 23-yard scramble. This game program from his historic debut rates crisp, bright EX/EX-MT condition.
