This item is from the collection of one of the foremost Joe Namath collectors in the world. His friendship with Joe since the beginning of his Jets career has led him to receive some amazing one-of-a-kind relics. Each piece hearkens back to an important NFL era and time capsules an unforgettable character with a Hall of Fame career.
Namath kept his promise of a win in Super Bowl III against a heavily-favored Indianapolis Colts. As a result, Broadway Joe’s place in gridiron history was assured for football eternity. With his charisma and flamboyant style, “Broadway Joe” was a public relations dream for the Jets and the AFL.
Here we find a Namath jersey in its most recognizable style, the classic white with green accents mesh representation worn at away games in the late 1970s. Painted on numbers announces the unforgettable number “12” on chest and on the back, where “Namath” spans the shoulders on the rear. Number “12” is repeated in white on the green of the sleeves.
The style and placement of the tail tagging is from the late 1970s, with the stacked “Jets Sand-Knit Exclusivity” and [size] Large with wash instructions labels. The jersey was signed in black felt tip marker with his #12 added as an inscription on the verso.There is evidence of softness in the tag, indicating that the jersey had been washed. Jersey doesn’t appear to have any other alterations of any kind.
Authentication: JSA Auction House LOA for autograph, 100% Authentic for game-use. (Provenance LOA)

Late 1970s New York Jets – Joe Namath Game-Worn, Signed Away Jersey
To Whom it may concern,
I have been a friend of Joe Namath from 1976 to date. I have been collection Joe Namath memorabilia for the past 40 years. I do have and have had the largest collection in the country of Joe Namath’s Memorabilia game worn jerseys, helmets, artifacts, art and photographs. I still collect to this day. I had Joe Namath sign his game used jersey personally which he reviewed and signed. I did receive jersey’s from the equipment manager. Joe’s agent Harlan Warner is also a friend and is familiar with me and how I obtained Joe’s personal items in my collection.
