Tampa Bay Buccaneers Collectibles And Memorabilia
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Collectibles And Memorabilia are items relating to the professional football team
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers joined the NFL in 1976, and their team colors are red, "pewter," black, white and orange. The first team logo was designed by the famous Tampa Tribune cartoonist, Lamar Sparkman, and he came up with the team logo featuring a pirate with a dagger in his mouth; (the pirate soon became known as "Bruce the Buccaneer" or "Buccaneer Bruce.") The team also established a cheerleading squad during their first season, and although they were originally named the "Swash-Buc-Lers," in 1999 the name was changed to the "Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders."
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have won one Super Bowl Championship in 2002, one Conference Championship in 2002, six Division Championships in 1979, 1981, 1999, 2002, 2005 and 2007, and have also appeared in the Playoffs ten separate times (in 1979, 1981, 1982, 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2005 and 2007).
Some of the most notable players who once played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers include Steve Young (who played for the Bucs from 1985 to 1986), Lee Roy Selmon (who played for the team from 1976 to 1984), Randall McDaniel (from 2000 to 2001), Carnell Williams (from 2005 to 2010), Ricky Bell (from 1977 to 1981), Doug Williams (from 1978 to 1982), and Brian Griese (from 2004 to 2005).

Memorabilia that was once owned, used, or signed by Carnell Williams (who played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2005 to 2010), or Brian Griese (who played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2004 to 2005) is considered to be the most valuable.
Memorabilia that dates back to before the 1980s is considered to be more rare than memorabilia from the 1990s to present.
Restoration of a Tampa Bay Buccaneers jersey, helmet, uniform, program, illustration, jacket, Championship ring or Championship coin is not recommended.
