1972 Miami Dolphins Reunion Signed Helmet
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,740.00
Riddell pro-style Miami Dolphins helmet signed in orange marker by forty-two members of the 1972 World Champion Miami Dolphins, the only undefeated team in NFL history. This helmet was signed on November 18, 1997 at the Miami Dolphins Reunion held at Don Shula's Hotel and Golf Club. Only seventy-two helmets were signed at this special signing event. This signed helmet is notated "#42 of 72" in orange marker on the reverse. Included are the signatures of coach Don Shula, Larry Csonka, Bob Griese, Paul Warfield, Mercury Morris, Jim Kiick, Earl Morrall, Jim Langer, Jim Dunaway, Larry Ball, Bill Stanfill, Hubie Ginn, Garo Yepremian, Doug Crusan, Marv Fleming, Howard Twilley, Vern Den Herder, Monte Clark (twice), Jesse Powell, Maulty Moore, Curtis Johnson, Norm Evans, Bill Arnsbarger, Larry Seiple, Al Jenkins, Charlie Babb, Otto Stowe, Ed Jenkins, Larry Little, Bob Heinz, Terry Cole, Bob Kuechenberg, Manny Fernandez, Mike Kolen, Jim Mandich, Marlin Briscoe, and Howard Kindig. The signature of Nick Buoniconti is not included as he was unable to participate in the reunion. All of the signatures are boldly penned, grading "10" (with very slight smudging to the Yepremian sig.), and all contrast beautifully against the white background. The helmet, a Riddell model "VSR-4," is in Near Mint condition. The members of the 1972 Dolphins will forever be immortalized due to their historic 14-0 season, a feat that has yet to be duplicated in the NFL. The team then went on to defeat Cleveland and Pittsburgh in the playoffs before capping their historic campaign with a 14-7 victory over Washington in Super Bowl VII. This is an outstanding and very limited-edition signed keepsake, ideal for display, commemorating one of the most legendary teams in the entire world of professional sport. Mint condition. LOAs from James Spence/JSA and Steve Grad, Mike Gutierrez & Zach Rullo/PSA DNA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,740.00
