The football great donned his number 13 jersey once more, as the figure for Madame Tussaud’s Orlando was unveiled Saturday at Sun Life Stadium in Miami.

“It was such a unique experience to work with the talented team at Madame Tussauds, I can’t wait to see what they have created,” said Dan Marino just before the unveiling took place. “It will be nice to see that jersey take a break from retirement!”
