The portrait depicts Stabler during the Crimson Tide’s 34-7 win over Nebraska in the 1967 Sugar Bowl. Stabler completed 12 of 18 passes for 218 yards and two total touchdowns and was named the game’s MVP.
Stabler died of cancer July 8, 2015 at the age of 69. He was posthumously inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Aug. 6, 2016.
