A game ball from the first victory in Miami Dolphins history highlighted American Memorabilia’s Super Bowl auction.
It’s been 40 seasons since the birth of the Miami Dolphins and one important artifact that remains from the club’s first victory was just sold. A game ball originating from the family of coach George Wilson brought a winning bid of $38,354.
NFL jerseys and a Hall of Famer’s game-used glove were among the other highlights in the sale, which was promoted during Super Bowl week in Miami and closed in the wee hours of Friday morning.
A late 1960s Tom Seaver game-used glove, autographed by the former New York Mets’ ace, went for $26,231. Late 1960s game-used jerseys from former Chicago Bears’ greats Gayle Sayers and Dick Butkus each surpassed $20,000. A single-signed Lou Gehrig baseball brought a successful bid of $14,266.
