1959 Baltimore Colts World Championship Pendant in Original Box

A rematch of the 1958 NFL Championship, considered by many football historians as the greatest game ever played, the result of this meeting was the same, yet far more decisive. Down by a score of nine to seven entering the fourth quarter, the Colts exploded for twenty-four unanswered points before surrendering a single, meaningless touchdown to the Giants to complete the thirty-one to sixteen scoring. Presented here is a pendant celebrating that victory in the twenty-seventh annual NFL Championship game.

Offered is this Oval shaped gold pendant in the manner of the Baltimore Colts 1959 NFL Championship ring as presented to the Colts players. In stunning Near Mint condition, the offered .8" charm has "Baltimore Colts, World Champions" in raised lettering around the perimeter on the front. Large cz at center is flanked by two small blue stones and ivy design on the gold. Back has the raised image of a bucking horse within a horseshoe with the words, "Colts 31, Giants 16 - 1959" on the horseshoe. Flawless.

Well preserved in the original box.  These were given to the players, coaches, and some front office personnel in lieu of rings.  The players also received watches for winning the 1959 NFL championship.  To date, less than handfuls have surfaced.

Additional LOA accompanies this historic piece attesting that this derived from the original collection of Lillian Henry who started as a secretary with the Baltimore Colts in 1953 and later served as a secretary to Colts officials and coaches, including Weeb Ewbank, Don Shula, Don McCafferty, Don Kellett and Ernie Accorsi.
