    Roger Staubach & Drew Pearson Signed "Hail Mary" Diagram. It happened 45 years ago - Dec. 28, 1975, to be exact, at old Metropolitan Stadium in Bloomington, Minn.

    The Hail Mary, it's called. Now, anyway. It wasn't then.

    Not on that brutally cold afternoon when Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach heaved the ball to wide receiver Drew Pearson. With only seconds left on the clock, the Cowboys down to the Minnesota Vikings 14-10. Fifty yards or bust. Everything on the line. A miracle needed, a miracle granted.

    The greatest play in Cowboys history. Or, at least, the most iconic.

    And now it's immortalized in this one-of-a-kind piece of art made by the man who authored the play: Roger Staubach. With a white acrylic-paint pen put to a 16-inch-by-20-inch chalkboard canvas, Staubach has diagrammed the Hail Mary - and signed the piece alongside the man who caught the ball, the legendary Drew Pearson himself. He personalized it, too, for this unprecedented moment: "In This Together 2020," writes the man known as Captain America, who led the Cowboys to two titles during his Hall of Fame tenure as QB for America's Team.

    A must-have for any Cowboys fan. Because there will never be another piece like it.
