If You Want To Achieve Perfection As A Collector, Miami Dolphins Autographed Memorabilia Is A Must
It is one year that will forever be remembered. It gave birth to an accomplishment that few teams have even come close to equaling. The year is 1972 and the accomplishment is the perfect season. It was a season where the Dolphins won all 14 of their regular season games and both playoff games in route to a Super Bowl win. The memories of an accomplishment like that never die. There is always someone that remembers it and there will always be Miami Dolphins autographed memorabilia to commemorate not only the perfect season, but all of the Dolphins accomplishments over the years. It’s up to the collectors of the world to keep those memories alive for future generations.
Before the Dolphins, the city of Miami had just one major sports franchise. The Miami Seahawks football team only lasted one year in 1946. There was such a lack of interest that few people believed that Miami would ever see professional football again. Those people were close to being right. It would take 20 years before another professional football franchise would take a chance on Miami. In 1966, the Miami Dolphins were born. As with many expansion teams, the first years were tough. “The Fins” lost more games than they one. One man would change everything in 1970 and set the Dolphins on a collision course with perfection. Don Shula was that man.
Shula immediately went to work. His grueling workouts in the Miami sun turned great players like Bob Griese, Larry Csonka and Paul Warfield into legends. Those early workouts would prepare them all for a season that would make them immortal throughout all of sports. No one could have imagines that a season like that could be possible with this team. They would lose Griese early on to a broken leg and would have to rely on veteran quarterback Earl Morrall to lead the team. Morrall looked more like he was more ready for retirement than the rigors of playing quarterback. But he led the team through the rest of the regular season until Griese returned to start in Super Bowl VII.
After that magical season, the Dolphins would win the Super Bowl the next season. After 1973, things would change for the Dolphins. The legends like Griese and Csonka would retire, but their replacements couldn’t match their success. It would take until 1983 before the Dolphins would see another man come to town to change their fate. That man was Dan Marino. Marino would put together a spectacular rookie season and win the conference passing title. The next season he would lead them to the Super Bowl but they would lose to Joe Montana and the San Francisco 49ers. Despite the talents that would eventually take him to Canton, Marino would never make it back to football’s biggest stage. As Marino’s career ended, so it seems the good times of the Miami Dolphins ended as well. The Dolphins have seemed to move sideways. The success of 1972 appears to be further away as each season comes and goes.
To Dolphin fans and sports memorabilia collectors, Miami Dolphins autographed memorabilia will always be something that they must have. Miami Dolphins signed memorabilia is the best way to remember 1972 and the season that will probably never be duplicated. You will never run out of pictures, helmets, jerseys and other pieces of Miami Dolphins signed memorabilia to add to your collection.
