Description: This painting depicts a 1976 Sports Illustrated magazine cover featuring Steve Spurrier, a San Francisco 49ers football player. The painting depicts the cover as though the corner has been torn away and some extraneous expressionistic paint marks overlay the realistic portrayal of the football player.
