With opening day in Major League Baseball going down today and the NFL draft going on later this month we decided it was a great time to showcase one of the other two way players that played both sports.
Deion “Primetime” Sanders was one of the best defensive backs of all time and he is known for making plays and taking away half of the field from opposing teams.
Deion was also known as a guy who was a difference maker and a guy who can get teams over the hump when it came to winning a championship. In 1994 Deion signed with the San Francisco 49ers and rocked the Nike Diamond Turf 2 in the great 49ers colorway and helped get the 49ers a ring.
Deion was the biggest NFL player had on its roster since Bo Jackson and was also its most popular. With commercials and shoes rocking the Deion’s made you cool back in the 90s.
The coolest thing about the Diamond Turf’s were the strap that came on the shoe. Deion wore the cleats on the field and us fans wore the shoes off of it. Out of all the kicks Deion wore, these are the most popular and they even retroed them last year for $120 a pop.
