The jersey worn by Paul Hornung during Super Bowl I sold for $70,500 at the annual Super Bowl Auction in Tampa Saturday. Hornung didn’t play in the Packers’ 35-10 win over the Chiefs in January of 1967 but he did don the same green and gold Packers durene jersey in other games as well.
A football attributed to Super Bowl I, signed by Hornung to a friend netted $25,850. The two items were among several consigned to the auction by Hornung’s widow. The Hall of Fame running back and former Heisman Trophy winner died last year.
The annual event, conducted by Hunt Auctions a day ahead of Super Bowl LV, also featured several items from NFL Auctions that were sold to benefit league charities. Game worn jerseys from Derek Henry ($21,150 and D.K. Metcalf ($12,925) were among the top sellers.
A program from the first Rose Bowl game in 1902 sold for $13,160. It had been inside a scrapbook before its recent discovery.

Congrats to Ray Prisby, who owns what might be the best Cleveland Browns collection in the world. Over the weekend, the Ohio resident was one of three people named to the Ford Hall of Fans in conjunction with the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
