Back in 2013, the Pro Football Hall of Fame collected Nick Foles’ jersey from his historic seven-touchdown game against the Oakland Raiders.
Now there’s a new Foles addition to Canton’s collection. This time it’s the Super Bowl MVP’s game-worn uniform, along with the touchdown ball from The Philly Special and other things.
We recently received and placed on display, artifacts from the @Eagles #SuperBowlLII victory. Items include the ball caught by QB @NickFoles for a TD in the memorable “Philly Special” trick play & Foles’ game worn jersey in which he won MVP honors. pic.twitter.com/JzN41dueKZ— Pro Football Hall of Fame (@ProFootballHOF) July 30, 2018
It’s pretty crazy to think that Foles, who has only averaged 6.5 starts per season to this point in his six-year career, has two jerseys on display in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
You could’ve never reasonably guessed that would’ve happened back when he was selected in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft. I’m sure there are some very good starting quarterbacks, ones better than Foles, who never get their gear enshrined in Canton.
Ultimately, these jerseys serve as a reminder of the high variance nature of Foles’ career. While his lows have been low, his highs have been incredibly high.
It’s hard not to appreciate another reminder that the Eagles won the Super Bowl. Let’s just hope some Carson Wentz gear will be joining Foles’ jerseys in the future.
