A "fearsome foursome" of artifacts, and much more, from the collection of the immortal Los Angeles Rams Hall of Famer Deacon Jones, spearhead the Steiner Sports Memorabilia "Coast to Coast Legends" online auction.
The dazzling quartet of lynchpin collectibles includes: Deacon's 1980 Hall of Fame ring, his rare 1966-67 Rams defensive playbook with strategies from the gridiron coaching icon George Allen and his 1968 and 1969 Most Valuable Player trophies. There are a total of 24 artifacts from the Deacon Jones collection registered.
The auction is now live and will continue through Dec. 9, what would have been the 75th birthday of the late, great defensive end. Ironically, Jones also wore number 75.
The announcement was made by Steiner Sports Founder Brandon Steiner, and Elizabeth Jones, Deacon's wife, who continues his legacy. A portion of the proceeds from the collection are earmarked for the Deacon Jones Foundation, which assists inner-city communities and develops future leaders.
