History: This jersey was worn by one of the most celebrated Bears of all time: the "Kansas Comet", Gale Sayers. Drafted in the first round by Bears patriarch George Halas, Sayers went on to score touchdowns running, receiving, and on a kickoff return in a game against Minnesota his rookie season - a feat that would not be achieved again in the NFL for 50 years. Sayers is perhaps equally known for his friendship with teammate Brian Piccolo. They were the first interracial roommates in the NFL, and the movie "Brian's Song" was based on Sayers' autobiography.
