A list of the best Indianapolis Colts of all time. This list includes all of the greatest players in Colts history, even those who played for the team when it was in Baltimore. The Colts are one of the NFL's classic teams. Many of the best Colts ever played in what is considered by many to be the greatest game in NFL history. The 1958 NFL championship game between the Colts and New York Giants was the first NFL game to go into overtime. In front of a large television audience, the Colts triumphed 23-17. Iconic Colts stars like Johnny Unitas, John Mackey, Art Donovan and Raymond Berry all wore the Colts' blue and white during that game. Unitas is considered by many to be one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. During the team's time in Baltimore, the great Colts teams won three NFL championships and a Super Bowl.

Controversially moving to Indianapolis in 1984, the Colts had some superstars like Eric Dickerson and Marshall Faulk, two of the best running backs of all time, but it took until the drafting of Peyton Manning in 1998 for the Colts to acquire its franchise superstar. With Manning at the helm, the Colts were a playoff certainty, even winning Super Bowl XLI in 2007. Marvin Harrison, Reggie Wayne, Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis were on that team and are also some of the best Colts ever. 

This is the list of the greatest Colts players of all time. You can include all players from the Colts history, including the best players from Baltimore who may not be on this list. Vote or rerank this list according to how you think the best Indianapolis Colts star should be ranked
