Deion Sanders' 1990 Atlanta Falcons jersey makes its return to the Mitchell & Ness lineup for the first time in five years. These are back by popular demand, so make sure you head to mitchellandness.com to get a hold of one!
Sanders' professional football career started in 1989 when he was drafted fifth overall by the Atlanta Falcons. Sanders returned his first career punt return for a touchdown. During his five years in Atlanta, Deion intercepted 24 passes, three of which he returned for touchdowns. It's hard to describe in words the energy level and intensity portrayed by Deion (and his dance moves)... check out this Falcons "Primtime" Highlight reel. Enjoy!
On a day when the Philadelphia Phillies are staring at the face of elimination, we wanted to give the Fightin’ Phils some inspiration before their must win Game 5 tonight at 7:57. 30 years ago today, the Philadelphia Phillies won the franchises’ first World Series Championship. It had taken nearly 100 years since the team’s inception, but on October 21st, 1980, the Philadelphia Phillies were World Series Champs and the proverbial monkey was lifted off the franchise’s back.
Fresh off their late inning comeback victory in Game 5, it was 30 years ago today that the Philadelphia Phillies stepped out on the green turf of Veterans Stadium to face off against the Kansas City Royals. The Phils sent their lefty ace, and eventual Cy Young winner, Steve Carlton to the mound to face off against the Royals’ righty Rich Gale. Gale would only make it through 2 innings of work and served up the eventual game winning run when Michael Jack Schmidt hit a 2 run single with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 3rd inning. Meanwhile, Steve Carlton would go on to pitch a 7 inning gem surrendering only one run and throwing seven strikeouts.
Tug McGraw got out of a jam in the 8th inning and would take the mound in the 9th with a 4-1 lead. After striking out Amos Otis for the first out of the 9th, McGraw would walk Willie Aikens and give up 2 singles to John Wathan and Jose Cardenal to load the bases. McGraw would get Frank White to pop up for the second out. So with the World Series in the balance with the bases loaded and 2 outs, McGraw faced off against Willie Wilson in an attempt to clinch the World Series. The rest is history
Let’s Go Phillies!
