Edgerrin James ranks third in all-time University of Miami rushing yards. He was the only running back in school history to post two consecutive seasons with 1,000-plus rushing yards, and he ranks first in school history with the most 100-plus rushing games (14). All single season records held by James have since been broken by former Baltimore Ravens running back Willis McGahee.

This game worn artifact originates from a team source.

Presented from their collection is an Edgerrin James Miami Hurricanes game-worn-home jersey from 1997. It is a white Hurricanes home jersey, that was designed by Nike. Of note, is the particularly rich hue of white which showcases the main mesh portion of the body. It features James’ number “5” printed on the front/back and top of the shoulders in green with orange borders.

Overall, the wear on the jersey is tremendous. There are very specific hit marks on the shoulder and NOB. The body of the jersey features hit marks (many on shoulders), repairs as well as degradation and cracking on the identifiers. Despite its normal cleaning, it still shows the battle wear throughout and has a scent of perspiration intact.

On the back nameplate, “JAMES” is ironed on the white nameplate across the back shoulders in orange lettering.  The name on the back shows use and hit marks on the letters.  There’s also a red hit mark near the letter “E”.

The front chest features a Big East patch and an orange Nike swoosh. The sides of the jersey are elasticized Spandex for fit and lined in white.

The sleeves are highlighted by orange/green striping and the collar also stands out in half orange half green with the Miami “U” logo centrally. Both sleeves (shoulder area) have clusters of hit marks with the left sleeve having a notable tear.

A size “48” tag is sewn into the collar.  The equipment manager informed us that the handwritten “1” designator is for SET 1 which equated to game use and it was done in black felt tip.  The player numeral “5” was written on the interior collar as well.  The bottom of the tail was cut and sewn (hemmed) to James’ specifications as a running back.

We believe that we have a photo match of the jersey on September 13, 1997.  Miami vs ASU.  There is a photo depicting the same tear on the right shoulder. In the photo from the GAME, you can see the HOLE in the “5” on the shoulder.  On this jersey, that same hole has been repaired.  On the same shoulder above the “5” there are tears which are also seen in the same photo from that game. See the side-by-side photos.

James took the time to autograph the front chest area in black felt tip (“7-8”) for the team source added value as well as his game use validation.
