Gale Sayers Silver Sharpie Autograph on an Official NFL Rozelle Football.

Lot 476. Gale Sayers Silver Sharpie Autograph on an Official NFL Rozelle Football. In large letters, Sayers added “HOF-77” to his signature, which presents “Gale” less boldly than “Sayers.” The autograph is strong, nm-m 8 to mint 9, on a mint football. Veteran NFL quarterback George Blanda cited Sayers as the best player he had ever seen. On its list of Football’s 100 Greatest Players, “The Sporting News” ranked him 21st, with three running backs rated higher - Jim Brown, Walter Payton and Barry Sanders. Sayers was a two-time consensus All-American at Kansas before he joined the Chicago Bears in 1965. He was the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year and was selected as the top player in three of the four Pro Bowls he appeared in. Sayers was friends with teammate Brian Piccolo, who died of cancer in 1970. In the aftermath of Piccolo’s passing, Sayers wrote his biography, “I Am Third,” which became the basis of the TV movie “Brian’s Song.” Injuries cut Sayers’ NFL career short. In 1977, at age 34, he became the youngest person inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. In 2019, he became a member of the College HoF. Sayers died in 2020. Winning Bid $75.
