1972 Miami Dolphins Reunion Team-Signed Helmet

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $960

Riddell model "VSR-4" pro-style 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. Included among the signatures are those of head coach Don Shula, Nick Buoniconti, Larry Csonka, Bob Griese, Paul Warfield (on the orange stripe on top of the helmet), Mercury Morris, Jim Kiick, Earl Morrall, Jim Langer, Jim Dunaway, Larry Ball, Bill Stanfill, Hubie Ginn, Garo Yepremian, Marv Fleming, Howard Twilley (on the orange stripe on top of the helmet), Vern Den Herder (on the orange stripe on top of the helmet), Jesse Powell, Maulty Moore, Curtis Johnson, Norm Evans, Larry Seiple, Al Jenkins, Charlie Babb, Otto Stowe, Ed Jenkins, Larry Little, Bob Heinz, Terry Cole, Bob Kuechenberg (signed simply "Kooch" on the orange stripe on top of the helmet), Manny Fernandez, Mike Kolen, Jim Mandich, Marlin Briscoe, Howard Schnellenberger, Howard Kindig, Dick Anderson, Doug Swift (on the orange stripe on top of the helmet), Jim Del Gaizo, and Karl Noonan. All of the signatures are boldly penned, grading "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 (nearly all of the others we have handled had forty-two or fewer signatures). Hand-numbered "39/272" near the left ear hole. 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. Auction LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $960
