    1980's Gerald Riggs Game Worn, Signed Atlanta Falcons Jersey and Helmet. An extremely talented rusher and pass receiver out of the backfield, Gerald Riggs turned in his best season in 1985, when the Arizona State alum tallied 1,719 yards from the ground, with ten touchdowns, in addition to 267 yards receiving. Offered here is a game-worn jersey he wore in the mid-1980's and a helmet he wore during the early years of his NFL career with the Atlanta Falcons. The jersey consists of white mesh, with screened on numerals on the front and back. The proper sewn-on black tackle twill NOB is affixed to a nameplate, while its "Russell [size] 46" tag is in the tail. Jersey shows extremely nice use, while displaying multiple team repairs and a light black felt-tip signature on the back No. 4. Also included is Riggs' Falcons helmet from the early 1980's. Exhibiting great wear throughout, this "BIKE" shell has the proper "42" decals at the rear, with its original padding, facemask and chinstrap still intact. Discerning game-worn collectors understand the scarcity of Falcons memorabilia from the 1980's, and this duo marks one of the nicest pairs from the desirable "Dirty Birds" era. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA (autograph on jersey). Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication (autograph on jersey).
