    Description

    1958 Baltimore Colts World Championship Presentational Bronze Plaque. The true surge in popularity for the National Football League began during the 1958 NFL Championship game, which was the first NFL playoff game to go into a "Sudden Death" overtime and is now commonly referred to as "The Greatest Game Ever Played." The 1958 NFL Championship game was won by Fuzzy Thurston and his Baltimore Colts by a score of 23-17 over the New York Giants and offered here is his presentational bronze plaque he was given by the team for his part on the 1958 world champion Baltimore Colts squad. The 6" in diameter bronze piece features a figural player with a Colts helmet in the center and "Baltimore Colts 1958 World Football Champions, For Outstanding Teamwork" around the perimeter. Also included is its original wooden stand. An important part of league history, which originated from Thurston's rookie season, and the only year he was not part of the storied Green Bay Packers.

    The Frederick "Fuzzy" Thurston Collection.
    One of the most beloved Green Bay Packer players in history, Frederick "Fuzzy" Thurston played a significant role in helping make coach Vince Lombardi's famed sweep one of the most dominant plays of the 1960's. Along with fellow offensive line teammates Forrest Gregg and Jerry Kramer, Thurston utilized Lombardi's methods of paying close attention to the smallest of details, in addition to focusing on the extreme importance of superior physical conditioning, in order to help propel his "Titletown" squad into one of the most recognized dynasties in the history of the National Football League.
    The lots offered within this auction represent an impressive selection of the most significant pieces once owned by the two-time All-Pro, who is also one of only three players in League history to have been a part of six World Championship teams.
