1950s J. D. Smith Game-Worn 49ers Durene Jersey
Out of stock
J. D. Smith rushed for over 4,500 yards in his eleven-year NFL career. Most of his real estate was gained for the 49ers, and although he wasn’t John Henry Johnson nor Hugh the King, he put together four exemplary seasons from ’59-62 when he gained 1,036, 780, 823 and 907 yards respectively, en route to 33 TD’s. For Generation X’ers, those were quality numbers for the era, as exemplified by his two Pro Bowl appearances (’59 and ’62). This road jersey dates to the ’60-62 period. It’s made of a lightweight cotton/nylon blend with embedded shoulder striping. Of note are the long sleeves with embedded elbow padding, the oversized “West Coast” 4-1/2″ sleeve numbers, and the ultra-high placement of the front and back numerals (relative to the major horizontal transverse torso seams). The oversized Wilson label in the lower left front tail is straight-stitch-affixed and original. The numerals and label exhibit puckering and soft surface wear, while the back #2 has edging degradation on its lowermost right edge. Rare and beautiful, it represents one of the final 49ers seasons with shoulder striping,`and unbeknownst to most, one helluva back with an engaging smile.
