    Description

    1964 Ralph Neely Game Worn, Signed Oklahoma Sooners Helmet. Worn during star offensive lineman Ralph Neely's 1964 season at OU, when he was selected as a consensus All-American, here we present his spectacular game-worn Sooners helmet. Exhibiting solid wear throughout, it presents its original facemask, U hook and six-point suspension padding. Signed and inscribed in bold black sharpie by Neely, it displays superbly. According to Neely, he lost his eligibility to play in the last two college games of his career, and when that happened the school immediately removed the number decals from the sides of the helmet. Shortly after, Neely went back to the equipment room to retrieve the helmet. Letter of provenance from Ralph Neely. Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA (autograph).


    The Ralph Neely Collection

    A disciple of legendary head coach Bud Wilkinson at the University of Oklahoma during his collegiate years, and the iconic Tom Landry while serving the Dallas Cowboys for the entirety of his professional career, Ralph Neely will go down in history as one of the most prolific offensive tackles in football history. An All-Pro four times, and a two-time Pro Bowler during his thirteen-season NFL career, the Little Rock, Arkansas native was an instrumental force in earning four Super Bowl trips for the Cowboys, claiming two Lombardi Trophies for America's Team. The following lots were consigned directly by Mr. Neely, and each will be accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from the 1964 All-American.
