Highlights Include:

John Taylor Super Bowl XXIX San Francisco 49ers Game Worn Jersey (Player Provenance)

A true relic and the first of its kind – the jersey that Taylor wore on January 29, 1995 when the San Francisco 49ers beat the San Diego Chargers in Super Bowl XXIX at Joe Robbie Stadium in Miami, FL. Taylor autographed and inscribed the verso numeral 8 “My Game Used Jersey S.B. XXIX, John Taylor #82, 01/95”. An unbelievable Super Bowl piece with incredible provenance that can be considered one of the nicer Super Bowl pieces offered to the secondary market.

John Taylor Super Bowl XXIII San Francisco 49ers Game Worn Helmet (Player Provenance)

It doesn’t get much better than this! For your consideration is John Taylor’s San Francisco 49ers rookie helmet, an absolute classic that smacks of game-worn authenticity in every way! This well used helmet protected John throughout multiple NFL seasons including the 49ers 1988 championship year which culminated in John’s stunning game winning Super Bowl XXIII catch with 34 seconds remaining on the clock! That game winning catch, which completed a 92 yard drive by the 49ers in the final three minutes, is remembered as one of the more notable moments in Super Bowl history. John has signed this very special piece of NFL history.
