Description

Detailed description on our website.

Those who lived through it will never forget the old Baltimore Colts first two NFL championships, which came back to back in 1958 and 1959. Led by legendary QB Johnny Unitas, this marvelous Colts team first defeated the New York Giants in what is known as “The Greatest Game Ever Played” and then repeated against the same Giants to put the icing on the cake. What better way to serve up these sweet memories than with this commemorative collection fine china, crafted by Balfour of Attleboro, MA.

 

Featured are: 1.) 10-1/4” diameter plate with team logo, 1958 title game score lettering and (44) facsimile signatures; 2.-3.) 6” diameter saucer with teacup, saucer has (31) facsimile signatures, cup has (15) facsimile signatures and 1959 title game score lettering; 4.) creamer pitcher with (46) facsimile signatures;  5.) sugar bowl with separate lid also with (46) facsimile signatures; and 6.) 10-5/8” plate (no signatures) with wide blue border and gold accents. All (6) pieces present in excellent condition with clean glossy surfaces adorned with bold “colt leaping over goalpost” logos and distinct blue facsimile signatures as noted above. Each item except the teacup is marked on the underside with a Balfour hallmark.
