Vintage Sports Report

With the NFL season entering their opening weekend and the Eagles and Packers set to battle, our Vintage Sports Report takes a look at Eagles memorabilia in a special football edition of the Vintage Sports Report.

With football season starting up, I thought it would be a good time to throw in a segment on football autographs and memorabilia, highlighting the Philadelphia Eagles.

First will be autographs.

Chuck Bednarik autographed football: $100. Dutch Clark autographed 8 x 10 photo: $150. Mike Ditka autographed football, $125. Sonny Jurgensen autographed football, $125.

Steve VanBuren autographed football, $85.

These are all Hall of Fame players and coaches for the Eagles. Other autographed footballs values include, Bill Bergey $75, Tom Brooksheir $75, Harold Carmichael $75 and Ron Jaworski, $75.

Here are the values for some other items of interest.

A game used jersey from Jerome Brown goes for about $1,295. An autographed, game used helmet from Chuck Bednarik brings about $8,000. The same item from Tommy McDonald, $2,000, Steve VanBuren, $2,750, Jerome Brown, $1,375, Randall Cunningham, $2,250 and Donovan McNabb, $2,100.

A McNabb autographed mini-helmet is worth about $75 and a McNabb bobble-head will set you back about $21.

Starting Line-Up figures from 1989 are worth finding. A Jerome Brown will cost you about $280 and a Keith Byars will go for about $180.

Eagles Media Guides from 1947-49 are worth about $50. Media Guides from the 50s are worth about $40 and ones from the 60s are valued at about $27. An Eagles Year Book from 1972 is priced at about $25.

Then, are the NFC Championship and Super Bowl Programs. A Championship Program from 1947 or 1948, when the Eagles and Bears battled in each of those seasons, is worth about $500. In 1949, it was L.A. against the Eagles and that one will set you back about $450, while one from the Eagles and Packers battle in 1960 is valued at about $400. A Super Bowl Program from 1981 when the Eagles and Raiders were the opponents will run about $45.

That will be it for our segment on football memorabilia, next week we will go back to baseball. Any questions on this article or any suggestions for future articles, please contact me at rrsports1@yahoo.com.
