Frank Gifford's Life in Photos

As the sports and entertainment worlds say goodbye to the legend, look back on his public achievements and private family moments


New York Giants co-owner Wellington Mara had the honors of inducting Gifford into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1977. "[He] was one of the greatest players to ever play for the Giants," Mara said in his speech. "He added dignity, tone and class to our entire operation. Even among stars, he was a standout." "Once a Giant, always a Giant," Gifford later said when reflecting on the moment. "I couldn't imagine not being a Giant. I was really blessed."
