Out of stock
Quite possibly, this is the finest Jerry Rice game-worn jersey ever offered. The man who inspected the jersey was Rice himself. Our consignor brought the jersey to Rice during a signing and asked him if this was indeed one of his gamers. Rice examined the garment and declared that it was used early in the ’89 or ’90 season. Rice affirmed that this was a true gamer with a bold autograph, adding the inscription “Game Worn” on the verso. To our knowledge, this is the first Rice game-used jersey with such a notation. A full PSA/DNA letter will accompany. The letter confirms that Rice’s penning was indeed in his hand.
Rice said he notched the neckline on his early game jerseys from the aforementioned time period, which this representation has. A number of stains appear throughout the shoulder area but are nearly washed out. All of the single-color red numerals have puckered and softened from use and launderings. Stretch spandex panels run from under the arm down the sides. Both sleeve ends are elasticized for a tight fit. The jersey is hemmed above the tag line. It has been reported that Rice was very particular when it came to his game jerseys. This one must have passed. A number of scuff marks are visible on the right sleeve end. Another noticeable mark is evident on the sleeve striping. According to one 49ers expert, Rice would have worn this in 1990 because the team went back to Wilson-made jerseys in 1990. In ’89 most players wore Russell jerseys.
Overall, one of the finest Rice gamers ever to become available to the collecting community. Rice himself endorsed this treasure with his inscription, “Game Worn.”
