    Description

    1985 Chicago Bears Super Bowl Championship Pendant Presented to Tight End Tim Wrightman. While the status of "greatest baseball team ever" is all but universally assigned to the 1927 New York Yankees, the debate over a corresponding gridiron honoree tends to narrow the field to two before devolving into a shouting match with little hope of resolution. For more than a decade following the undefeated season of the 1972 Miami Dolphins, there was little question but that supremacy belonged to south Florida, but when all the pieces fell into place at Soldier Field during the 1985 NFL season, the 'fins suddenly encountered a challenger for the throne.

    If charisma figured into the metrics, the '85 Bears would be the clear victor, helmed by a brash Jim McMahon at quarterback who wore his emotions on his sleeve, and on his ever-present headband. With an iconic Hall of Fame running back nicknamed "Sweetness" and a massive defensive lineman called "The Refrigerator," the Bears dazzled as they dominated, cementing a place in popular culture with a charmingly amateurish and irreverent rap video entitled "The Super Bowl Shuffle."

    Presented here is tight end Tim Wrightman's 10 karat gold Jostens pendant that he received for his contributions on that magical squad. One of less than 40 that were produced for wives and girlfriends of the coaches and players, the 17 gram showpiece displays "Tim Wrightman Super Bowl XX" on the verso. Terrific diamond encrusted memento from one of the most popular Bears of the mid 1980's, who led all tight ends in receiving yards during the Bears' Super Bowl XX season. Fine condition.
