1970s New York Jets - Joe Namath Game-Worn Away White Jersey
Circa 70's Joe Namath Game Worn Jersey. Namath kept his promise of a win in Super Bowl III against a heavily-favored Indianapolis Colts. As a result, Broadway Joe's place in gridiron history was assured for football eternity. With his charisma and flamboyant style, "Broadway Joe" was a public relations dream for the Jets and the AFL.
Here we find a Namath jersey in its most recognizable style, the classic white with green accents mesh representation worn at away games. Painted on numbers announces the unforgettable number "12" on chest and on the back, where "Namath" spans the shoulders on the rear. Number "12" is repeated in white on the green of the sleeves.
On the left front tail of this jersey is the “Champion” manufacturer’s tag with jersey size “L” and wash instructions. There is evidence of softness in the tag, indicating that the jersey had been washed. As typical, Namath always wore a crotch piece on his jersey's to keep his look clean. The crotch piece is fully in tact. Jersey doensn't appear to have any other alterations of any kind. Light wear, is perfectly understandable for a quarterback's jersey.
A significant jersey such as this only adds more allure with fantastic provenance and "flashy" Broadway Joe story behind it. This jersey was team sourced directly from the equipment manager, Bill Hampton during the 70's. Being related to the owners of the club, and working as an assisstant to Hampton, Joe Namath's gamers were accessible. To note, it was during this time that they had just switched over to the "new" mesh style jersey, instead of the heavy cloth. A notarized letter will accompany the jersey from the family of the late owners. In a day where provenance, can skyrocket an item's value, this jersey has just taken off for the moon.
