A number of championship rings, awards and game balls from the career of a Hall of Fame quarterback are headed to the auction block in January.
George Blanda‘s 26-year career as a quarterback and kicker included three AFL championships and a league MVP award — and the spoils of those successes will be sold via Laguna Niguel, Calif.-based SCP Auctions.
Among the items are pieces ranging back to his college days at the University of Kentucky in the 1940s when he played for Paul “Bear” Bryant and into his days as the leader of the Oakland Raiders and the Houston Oilers. He passed for nearly 27,000 yards and 236 touchdowns before retiring at age 48 in 1975.
Check out the top eight items teased by SCP in the gallery below, all of which came directly from Blanda’s family.
