    5 GU Questions with Mark Clayton

    Mark Clayton played 11 NFL seasons amassing 582 receptions, 8,974 receiving yards and 84 touchdowns. He was a 5-time Pro Bowler who along with Mark Duper was a member of the Miami Dolphins' famed "Marks Brothers," catching score after score from Dan Marino.

    In 2005, when Marino was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, he threw one last TD pass to Mark Clayton.

    Mark was kind enough to answer 5 Game Used Questions.

    5 Game Used Questions with Mark Clayton

    Q1: What game used pieces from your career do you have in your collection? Tell us about the ones that mean the most to you

    MARK CLAYTON: I don't have a collection. I do have the ball Dan Marino tossed me when he was inducted into the Hall of Fame. I’m going to get it painted.

    Q2: Are there any items that you wish you kept?

    MARK CLAYTON: Yes. I wish I would have kept all my TD balls and when I got game balls from the team for having a good game.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Q3: How many jerseys and helmets would you go through each season?

    MARK CLAYTON: I may have used 2, at the most 3 jerseys per season and the same 1 helmet my whole career.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Q4: Have you ever seen one of your pieces at auction? Was it real? How does it make you feel to see your equipment sold?

    MARK CLAYTON: No. I have never seen anything of mine at an auction but I have seen something that came from one that wasn't signed by me so you could say it wasn't real

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Q5: If you could have game worn jerseys from your 5 favorite receivers and money was no object- who would you get?

    MARK CLAYTON:
    Fred Biletnikoff


    Jack Snow


    Lance Alworth


    Paul Warfield


    and Don Hutson

    We already have a interview with a baseball player ready to go. He's a guy who played for 8 teams here in the states and is currently playing in Japan. I'll let people digest the Mark Clayton piece before posting the next one.

    Glad to hear you enjoyed it. I'm having a blast doing it.
