Circa 1960 Johnny Unitas Baltimore Colts Game-Used Uniform

Likely Worn In The 1958 Double O.T. NFL Championship Game — “The Greatest Game Ever Played”


Nicknamed “The Golden Arm” for his sensational passing abilities, Johnny Unitas is known as one of the greatest NFL players of all time. Unitas was drafted in 1955 by the Pittsburgh Steelers, but he was cut before the season started. Out of football, Johnny relied on a construction job to support his family until the Baltimore Colts tried him out in 1956. With the Colts, Unitas became one of the best quarterbacks the NFL has ever seen. Inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1979, Johnny was a 10-time Pro Bowler, 5-time First Team All-Pro, 3-time NFL MVP, 3-time NFL Champion and Super Bowl V Champion. He also held the record for the most consecutive games with a touchdown pass for 52 years.
