Adam Sandler’s Football Uniform Worn Throughout “The Waterboy” Movie (w/Sportsrobe LOA)
Out of stock
Bobby Bucher is the lowly water boy for a college football team, until his coach discovers his amazing talent for tackling people much larger than himself. He’s added to the squad, and the water boy becomes the team’s new star, even earning recognition on ESPN’s SportsCenter! The 1998 slapstick comedy starred Adam Sandler, and this is the actual uniform that he wore in most of the movie’s action scenes. Since his team had previously suffered countless defeats over preceding years, the quality of the school’s equipment was necessarily humble at best, which explains why this uniform reflects anything but the usual flash and glory of mainstream college uniforms.
The three-piece uniform consists of a soft cotton ’50s style orange-red hue jersey that has sewn-on royal blue tackle twill numerals on both sides; the back collar’s major horizontal transverse seam has been cut. There’s no name on the jersey, which shows appropriate dirt, use, and wear…meaning this is the one primarily worn in the movie (and distinctly not one of the identical duplicates kept in reserve in case of loss or damage on the set).
The accompanying pants are brown nylon with a canvas belt and drawstring fly; the knee and thigh pads are still intact. There are repairs to the back left and back right hip areas of the pants.
Finally, the headgear is a double bladder helmet with #1 marked on the interior warning sticker and “9 Bobby Herd” on the back lower neck pad. It’s got a single bar gray mask and a double high/low hookup chinstrap; there’s nice exterior wear.
The ensemble comes with a Letter of Authenticity from Sportsrobe, Inc. who is a major supplier of uniforms and equipment to the movie industry. Bobby “Boo-shay” would be proud of you becoming high bidder in this fantastic opportunity!
