Eli Manning Game-Used, Autographed (PSA 9) 2004 Giants Jersey "Rookie Year Game Used 2004 #1 Draft Pick"
Eli Manning finally stepped from under his brother's shadow and carried his Giants to an improbable Super Bowl title. In fact, he one-upped the popular sibling by doing it in half the time it took Peyton. The "Road Warriors" overcame tremendous odds by pulling off three thrilling playoff victories, in hostile venues, as they coursed their way to one of the greatest upsets in Super Bowl history.
At the center of this odyssey was the steady play of Eli Manning. This [size] "50" road jersey was worn by Manning when he was cutting his teeth as a rookie. All of the identifiers are sewn on in two-color red and blue, and the sleeves are open. Light puckering appears on the identifiers. Tail tagging includes a Reebok tag which has ruckled from laundering. Two flag tags (2" L.B. and size) hang from the Reebok swatch. An "04-50" swatch appears in the collar, and the lettering has pulled away from the tag somewhat. In blue felt tip, Manning furnished authentication in signing the bottom of the front, "Rookie Year Game Used 2004 #1 Draft Pick."
It is the only known rookie gamer in the hobby that comes with authentication from Steiner Sports (Manning's exclusive memorabilia agent), affirming that the inscription is indeed in Eli's hand. Finally, we also obtained PSA/DNA's assessment of the autograph, and they tendered a grade of MINT 9 . One of the first and finest Eli gamers ever to surface. Photo style match from Getty images provided to demonstrate distinct sleeve tailoring.
