About William Perry Autographed Memorabilia & Collectibles
William Perry was selected by the Bears in the first round of the 1985 NFL Draft as one of the finishing pieces to their “Monsters of the Midway” defense that won a Super Bowl that season. Perry went to Clemson University prior to the NFL and was a standout athlete. At Clemson, Perry was part of a team that won the National Championship in 1981 in his freshman season. Perry was nicknamed “The Refrigerator” by one of his college teammates his freshman year when he could barely fit in an elevator with Perry and his teammate remarked that he was as big as a fridge. In 1983, “The Fridge” was a consensus All-American at Clemson.
Perry was not only a solid defensive lineman for the Bears, but he became famous with fans when Head Coach Mike Ditka started to play him on offense as a fullback in short-yardage situations. Perry rushed for two touchdowns in his career, and caught one as well, all in his rookie season in 1985. He spent a majority of his career with the Bears, but Perry also had a stint with the Eagles as well as the London Monarchs.
William Perry did not go on to have a Hall of Fame career, but he was undoubtedly one of the most popular players to ever wear a Bear uniform. His massive size and power, as well as the great nickname of “The Refrigerator”, was widely admired by fans. Perry did make a Hall of Fame however as he was elected to the WWE Hall of Fame in the “Celebrity Wing”. Our memorabilia of Perry are sure to remind Bears fans of one of their favorite players to ever play in Chicago. These collectibles are guaranteed authentic and will be great pieces to display in your home or office.
