How often do brothers get drafted into the NFL in the same season? The immediate response which comes to mind is Tiki and Ronde Barber in rounds two and three of the 1997 draft. Two decades earlier, however, an even more astounding occurrence transpired. Two brothers were drafted in the first and second round – by the same team … Absolutely unprecedented in the annals of the NFL draft. The Selmon brothers, Leroy and Dewey, had been great defenders at Oklahoma and in 1976 the pride of Eufaula, Oklahoma captured the overall #1 pick (Leroy) and a second rounder in Dewey. Leroy had won the Lombardi and Outland trophies in college and after battling injuries for two seasons, went on to six consecutive Pro Bowls until his career was cut short by a back injury in 1985.
This representation is perhaps the finest Leroy Selmon gamer ever offered. Originally from the esteemed Duke Hott collection, its bright orange mesh is colorfully highlighted by white and red screened-on identifiers. Of note are Wilson’s diagonal shoulder seams, the extensive 3-D style backing color red of the sleeve numbers, and the six-button crotch piece base and tail which remain fully intact. The jersey demonstrates significant shoulder abrasions, turf burns and numerous repairs. “L. SELMON” appears on the nameplate (“L.” to distinguish from brother Dewey who was rostered until 1982). An earlier period Wilson size 50 label graces the lower left front tail. Wilson made a minimal amount of “larger” size tags above size 48, and these numeric designators were often penned in, as is exhibited here. Overall, a colorful, dashing garment representing this great Hall of Famer with all of the wear a die-hard could ask for.
