Rayfield Wright Collectible
Born on August 23, 1945, Rayfield Wright played football for the Dallas Cowboys in the National Football League. Coach Tom Landry once wrote in a letter to the State of Georgia Hall of Fame that 'Although he was a long shot in the 1967 draft, Rayfield's superior athletic ability and competitiveness carried him to six straight Pro Bowls and four All-Pro seasons, making him the most honored offensive lineman in Cowboys history. Rayfield was an integral part of all five of our Super Bowl teams. He was always a team player whose solid character contributed to a winning atmosphere. It was an honor to coach Rayfield Wright.' Rayfield's first ever coach was 'Big Mama', his grandmother who would spend every hour coaching him in football and the bible. He attributes his success to his family, namely his mother, his cousin 'Bubba', his immediate siblings and a dedicated leader named Mr. Lomax. Rayfield was brought up a pious boy who blindly believed in the power of prayer; an aspect thought to him by his grandmother. Rayfield endured numerous difficulties to land a position in the Dallas Cowboys team, where he was teamed up with fellow legends Calvin Hill, Tony Dorsett, Robert Newhouse, and Drew Pearson. During his 13 year football career, Rayfield impressed fans and sport critics with his on-field performance and was twice voted as Offensive Lineman of the Year by his colleagues. The Ice Bowl, the Hail Mary pass, and his appearance in five Super Bowls are all proof of his out standing leadership abilities. Today, Rayfield Wright is the President of the 'NFL Alumni Chapter' (Arizona) and 'Kids 4 Tomorrow' which is a non-profit organization for young athletes. He was credited as the NFL's premier offensive tackle in the 1970s and was also inducted into the State of Georgia's Hall of Fame (1988), the Texas Black Sports Hall of Fame (2002), the Dallas Cowboys Ring of Honor (2004), and the Pro Football Hall of Fame (2006). The legend that he is, Rayfield collectibles are rare to find. Hardcore football fans are willing to drop big dollar for autographed Wright footballs, helmets and pictures.
