Joe Montana Still Breaking Records – Two-Time Super Bowl-Worn Jersey Brings $1.2 Million

Share This Post

The red San Francisco 49ers jersey Joe Montana wore in not one, but two Super Bowls sold for a record $1.212 million in Goldin’s February Elite Auction that closed March 1.

According to Goldin, it’s the most ever paid for a football jersey in auction.

The jersey is the one Montana wore during Super Bowl XIX vs. the Miami Dolphins in 1985. Four years later, he wore the same jersey again in Super Bowl XXIII which included a last-second touchdown drive to beat the Cincinnati Bengals.

“Joe Montana was already in rarified air with four championship rings and three Super Bowl MVPs to his name and now he owns a new record — the most expensive football jersey ever sold at auction,” Goldin Executive Chairman and Founder Ken Goldin said. “With the record-breaking sale of his Super Bowl XXIII jersey, Montana has surpassed Tom Brady on top of that mountain. It’s only right that the two greatest quarterbacks of all time are still trading off records, even in retirement.”

Why did Montana wear the same jersey in two Super Bowls?

According to Goldin’s pre-auction description, “The morning of Super Bowl XXIII, Montana’s wife, Jennifer, took his game-used jersey from Super Bowl XIX out of a scrapbook, and put it in the bag he was bringing to the game, with a note that read ‘Maybe you want to wear it again.’ Montana, indeed, wore it in Super Bowl XXIII.”

The jersey came from The Joe Montana Collection, which Goldin handled for the Hall of Fame quarterback, and attracted 22 bids.
