Lot 1541: Circa 1974 Joe Namath Game Worn Jersey
The pinnacle of football jerseys of the modern era! From a man who was more than just an athlete - a public icon, the most glorified player of his generation, the lovable rebel known as "Broadway Joe". Aside from quarterbacking the upset for the ages, making the Jets the first AFL team to win a Super Bowl (16-7 upset of the Colts in Super Bowl III), Joe Namath will always be remembered for providing fans with a new kind of sports star - the kind of cocky, rebellious good-time Charlie they love to admire. Embodying both Hall of Fame talent and charisma, Joe Namath was a superstar in every sense of the word, everywhere he went attracting the kind of attention usually attributed to a rock star. Green mesh New York Jets jersey was worn by the legend, the chosen one circa 1974. Ironed on lettering and numbering: Front, back & sleeves bear his number "12" (numbering on front and back in white, sleeves in green). "Namath" on the back in white lettering. Crotch piece is intact. "Champion" label on front left tail with the size "L". Jersey shows nice use with no alterations of any kind. LOA.
