Memorabilia from the collection of one of the NFL’s all-time greats is coming to auction later this week.
Worthridge Auctions will kick off its first event on Sunday with hundreds of lots including dozens of items from the estate of Reggie White.
A two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year, 13-time Pro-Bowl player, and eight-time First-Team All-Pro selection, White won a Super Bowl with the Green Bay Packers in the 1990’s. He was chosen for the 75th Anniversary NFL All-Time Team, and both the NFL 1980’s and 1990’s All-Decade Teams. White died of a heart ailment in 2004.
Some of the items Worthridge will feature in their upcoming auction are White’s game-worn helmets from the University of Tennessee, Philadelphia Eagles, Green Bay Packers, and Carolina Panthers. His Super Bowl XXXII game-worn Packers jersey, as well as other game-used equipment, awards and trophies are also included in the collection. He also collected other memorabilia from fellow players during his time in the NFL, such as a signed, game-worn helmet from Barry Sanders, and many other football and baseball items. All items come directly from the White family, and the Estate of Reggie White.
