1. Cleveland Browns QB Otto Graham, 1946 game-worn jersey
Talk about history. Otto Graham’s game worn jersey from the 1946 season has to be up there for hardcore Browns collectors.
Think about it. The year was 1946. The birth of the Browns, and to this date, Graham remains the franchise’s greatest quarterback. The guy was Tom Brady long, long before the G.O.A.T arrived on earth.
Graham went to 10 championship games between his time in the old AAFC and the NFL, and he won seven titles.
Additionally, in a day and age where memorbilla is graded and authenticated, this jersey is about as rare as it gets, as the auction site, Lelands, said at the time, no other Graham jersey existed in private hands.
This jersey is ripped, but only because the auctioneer said it was ripped off the Hall of Famer during the game.
In 2001, Graham’s No. 60 jersey sold for just over $16,000. It would be interesting to see what it go for in today’s exploding sports memorabilia.
