    1986 Bo Jackson Game Worn Memphis Chicks Jersey - Photo Matched to 6/29 vs. Charlotte Orioles. One of the only athletes ever mentioned in the same breath with multi-sport icon Jim Thorpe, Bo Jackson possessed all-world talent on the diamond and the gridiron. Selected by the Tampa Bay Bucs in the 1986 NFL Draft, Jackson was also drafted by Kansas City in the fourth round of the 1986 amateur baseball draft. Shortly after the baseball draft, Jackson signed a three-year contract with the Royals and spent his first 53 games in a baseball uniform with the Royals farm club Memphis Chicks.

    Presented here is quite possibly Jackson's first ever professional jersey, and it is photomatched to the June 29, 1986 game versus the Charlotte Orioles at Tim McCarver Stadium in Memphis. While Bo only warmed up during the June 29th game and didn't get any game action, Photomatch Resolution also states that it has images of Jackson on June 20, which shows him likely wearing the same jersey.

    Exhibiting solid wear throughout, the jersey does have a name change on the back, which suggests at least one other player wore it before Jackson. Displaying beautiful sewn-on identifiers throughout, it has the proper Rawlings size 44 tag in the interior tail. LOA from Resolution Photomatching. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
