JIM OTTO UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI c1958/59 White Durene Blend Jersey

This University of Miami jersey c 1958/1959 was worn by legendary center Jim Otto in his final collegiate season, and perhaps also during his penultimate
season. It features a white jersey body made of a heavy cotton /nylon durene blend featuring green sleeve inserts with white sleeve numbers. Otto’s #50 is featured in green on the jersey front and verso. All identifiers are sewn on and the tackle twill shows wonderful surface softness. Made by Wilson, it features a Wilson size 46 period label in the tail. A finishing touch is the 1/2 inch green sleeve end accents. The “U” had used plain jerseys with numerals and devoid of any striping during the early – mid 50s, but this style from the late 50s thru the mid 1960s was their first venture into stylish uniforms. The jersey was worn with bright gold pants and was reminiscent of the stylish Packers uniform of the 1960s.

The jersey demonstrates multi season use and has team repairs on both the white and green portions of the jersey body. It was sourced from Jim Otto’s private career collection. How rare are college jerseys of NFL Hall of Famers emanating directly from the player ?? When was the last time one was offered? An aesthetically pleasing and rare offering from an iconic football legend.
