Magazine Cover of the Week

LIFE Magazine 
November 29th 1963


With Naval Academy QB Roger Staubach (and 1963 Heisman Trophy winner) on the cover, this issue was never circulated.  It was pulled and replaced by a cover of recently assassinated President John F. Kennedy.   Hard to find and going for over $1000.00 we put on ebay, this issue is a truly a collectors item.
