"Sea of Hands" Play-Offs Game Football Given to Oakland Raider "The Assassin" Jack Tatum Raiders Vs. Dolphins 2-2-74 w/ Tatum Family Letter

Miami Dolphins 26 Oakland Raiders 28 Saturday December 21, 1974. Wow, what a game. It came to be known as the "Sea of Hands" game.  This play brought victory to the Raiders, bringing them to the AFC Championship game.   

Stabler dropped back to pass and looked for Biletnikoff in the end zone, but he was tightly covered. With Dolphins defensive end Vern Den Herder dragging him down, Stabler threw a desperate pass to the left side of the end zone into a "sea of hands", where Davis fought his way through the Dolphins defenders to make the touchdown catch.

Trailing 28-26, the Dolphins got the ball back with 24 seconds left. But on their second play of the drive, Oakland linebacker Phil Villapiano intercepted Griese's pass at the Raiders 45-yard line, allowing his team to run out the rest of the clock.

"This has to be the toughest loss I've ever suffered," said Miami coach Don Shula, "The Raiders are a great credit to professional football," he added. "They needed touchdowns to win and they got them." 

The game ball  was given personally to Jack Tatum for his efforts in this game.  

It's an Official Pete Rozelle football that came off the field with all the details painted on for Tatum - the game date, score etc. The ball itself is still laden with on field wear and comes with a letter from the HOFers family.
