Goldin, the leading collectible marketplace, broke records with the auction of “The Joe Montana Collection” consisting of incredible and historical items including photo-matched, red San Francisco 49ers jerseys that Montana wore during the Super Bowls XIX and XXIII (sold for $1.212 million) and so much more.
Montana is considered by many to be one of the greatest football players to ever step out on the gridiron. The legendary quarterback from Newton Eagle, Pennsylvania won four championships, playing in an era when the rules heavily benefited defenses. “The Comeback Kid” consistently came out on top on the biggest stages, never losing a Super Bowl in his illustrious career.
Highlights from the auction collection included (including buyer’s premium):
- Montana’s game uniform worn in his final played game with the 49ers ($232,800) and a signed helmet from his final game with the team, which he didn’t play ($121,200)
- The ball from his final San Francisco touchdown pass ($43,214)
- His signed Kansas City Chiefs uniform from his final NFL game ($92,400)
- Montana’s high school jersey ($36,000)
- His Pro Football Hall of Fame jacket ($36,000) and bust ($14,401)
- His “twice-signed, inscribed” Super Bowl XXIII “Last Drive” playbook ($10,200)
“I have been fortunate to have some incredible moments in my career, but these weren’t just individual moments. They were moments celebrated with an entire fanbase of people,” said Montana. “I have amassed a lot of memorabilia over the course of my career, and I am excited to share these parts of my collection for fans to enjoy and continue to relive the memories. A portion of the proceeds raised through the auction will be directed to The Four Rings Montana Family Foundation, which supports local children’s charities.”
