Johnny Unitas' championship jacket
The greatest quarterback to ever play the game (at least, we think so) played it for 17 seasons as a Baltimore Colt. Johnny Unitas was judged not good enough to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers (Ha!), which makes it even more delicious that he played almost his entire Hall-of-Fame career right here in Charm City. Pictured is the jacket, now owned by a private collector, that he earned for leading the Colts to an overtime win in the 1958 championship game vs. the New York Giants more than half-a-century later, still referred to as The Greatest Game Ever Played.
