The second AFL-NFL World Championship was played on January 14, 1968 pitting the Green Bay Packers against the Oakland Raiders. The Packers ended up winning 33-14 with a good effort from the Raiders. The game was later named Super Bowl II.
This game worn jersey was obtained after the 1968 Super Bowl II game and it was worn in this game by one of the game’s most fleet of foot, tight end brutes on the field, Billy Cannon. Cannon a Heisman winner played for ten years and strictly stuck to his AFL butter in his professional tenure. In the Super Bowl itself he had two receptions for 25 yards. Back in those days, they wore jerseys out for many games and this one is no exception. Made from durene it shows awesome on field use throughout from the season (thread fraying etc.) and features the classic gray identifiers. It also features a custom bottom cut as he did on all of Cannon’s jersey from George Anderson the head trainer. The cut is shown by one of the photos. This one in particular has impeccable sourcing, as it was aquired from the George Anderson collection.
