John Huarte Game-Worn Memphis Southmen WFL Jersey, (Heisman Trophy Winner)
Out of stock
John Huarte brought Notre Dame back to national prominence in the mid-’60s. Shortly thereafter, the AFL’s New York Jets (so desperate to bolster the fledgling “other league”) drafted QBs Joe Namath and Huarte – #1 and #2 respectively in 1965 – signed them both and rolled the dice. Of course, Namath went on to a Hall of Fame career while Huarte bounced around as a back-up with the Patriots, Eagles, Chiefs and Bears. At the end of his career, he caught on with the Memphis Southmen of the WFL.
This unusually styled jersey purely typified the WFL, and was manufactured locally by All Sports (Sports Belle) of Knoxville, Tennessee. Made mostly of bright orange mesh, it features a knit cross-over collar and double knit sleeves with the club’s brown and white striping. The numerals are sewn in dark brown-on-white tackle twill, as is the NOB, which is plateless. There are no sleeve numbers nor underarm gusset seams, but the size “XL” jersey is cut wide and was definitely used by the team, however minimally – An unusual professional representation of an eminently revered college QB.
