Milt Morin’s Cleveland Browns Home Game Jersey and an Autographed Card.
Lot 490. Milt Morin’s Cleveland Browns Home Game Jersey and an Autographed Card. Our consignor received this jersey directly from Morin, who was a good friend. The tail of the size 48 jersey has a Medalist Sand-Knit tag with the following: “Designed & Tailored Exclusively for the CLEVELAND BROWNS American Football Conference.” Whether the jersey was used in a game is uncertain. Game-use is not evident. It clearly is a game jersey and might have been an extra given to Morin. The brown jersey has Morin’s name in white on the back. His number “89”, also in white, is on the sleeves and on the front and back. Brown, orange and white stripes accent the sleeves. Morin signed his 1973 Topps card. The card is ex with a gem mint 10 signature. Morin joined the Browns in 1966 as their first-round draft selection after being a 1965 consensus All-American at the University of Massachusetts. For 10 seasons, he was one of the NFL’s best tight ends; he was named to the Pro Bowl in 1968 and 1971. Among Cleveland tight ends, he ranks second in career receptions and yards. He passed away in 2010, a week before his induction into the College Football Hall of Fame. Winning Bid $291.
