Mid-Summer Classic Auction 2013
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
Tony Dorsett wore these Converse cleats during his fabled NFL career that included four Pro Bowls and rushing for more than 1,000 yards in eight of his first nine seasons. Dorsett rushed for 12,739 yards and 77 touchdowns in his 12-year career, adding another 13 receiving scores and even a fumble recovery for a touchdown. In 1999, he was ranked No. 53 on The Sporting News' list of the 100 Greatest Football Players. He is the first of only two players in history (Marcus Allen is the other) who has won the Heisman Trophy, the Super Bowl, the College National Championship, and been enshrined in both the College and Pro Football Halls Of Fame. Dorsett has enhanced these heavily game-used beauties mightily by penning a blue Sharpie autograph on the left shoe with his No. 33 inscription and "To Big Bill, Best of Luck"; on the right shoe he signed and added his No. 33 inscription. As noted, the shoes show enormous game use but remain largely with all elements intact and as-issued, though there has been a small adhesive piece added to the right shoe that covers the Converse logo. Comes with a Letter of Authenticity from Bill Ficke.
