Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,440
Riddell model "VSR-4" prostyle Miami Dolphins helmet signed in blue Sharpie by forty-six members of the 1972 World Champion Miami Dolphins, the only undefeated team in NFL history. The forty-six signatures on the helmet are those of head coach Don Shula, Nick Buoniconti (on the orange stripe on top of the helmet), Larry Csonka, Bob Griese (on the orange stripe on top of the helmet), Paul Warfield, Mercury Morris, Jim Kiick, Earl Morrall, Jim Langer, Jim Dunaway, Larry Ball, Bill Stanfill, Hubie Ginn, Garo Yepremian, Marv Fleming, Howard Twilley, Vern Den Herder, Monte Clark, 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, Charlie Leigh, Howard Schnellenberger, Howard Kindig, Dick Anderson, Doug Swift (on the orange stripe on top of the helmet), Jake Scott (on the orange stripe on top of the helmet), Tim Foley, Jim Del Gaizo, Karl Noonan, and one other (illegible). All of the signatures are boldly penned, grading "9" or "10," and contrast beautifully against the white background. This helmet was signed at a reunion show and is one of the most complete examples we have ever seen (of the few others we have handled, all had forty-two or fewer signatures). The members of the 1972 Dolphins will forever be immortals of the sporting world due to their historic 14-0 season. 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 signed keepsake, ideal for display, commemorating one of the most legendary teams in the entire world of professional sport. Near Mint to Mint condition. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,440
