    Mid 1980's Walter Payton Game Worn Chicago Bears Jersey. Direct from the "Super Bowl Shuffle" era comes this midnight navy mesh home gamer worn by Sweetness during his most productive years at Soldier Field. The style is Payton's most recognizable, with white and orange screenprinting announcing his immortal number "34" on chest, back and sleeves, and "Payton" screened in similar fashion across rear nameplate. Sleeve striping includes the memorial to George Halas on the left. Plastic "Wilson [size] 44" label in tail shows fine wear to match the rather sizeable team repairs present in the chest, shoulder and sleeve areas. The back nameplate is zigzag stitched on the fabric, while three letters in Payton's name have become slightly disengaged near the top, but not to the point that they inhibit display, and they could certainly be glued back down if desired. Payton's relevance to the sport of football is undeniable, and shortly before his death in 1999 he was ranked number eight on The Sporting News' list of the 100 greatest football players. He was the highest-ranked Chicago Bear (just ahead of Dick Butkus at number nine) and the second-highest rated running back behind Jim Brown. Any game worn jersey from this iconic star is worthy of Canton and the finest football collections. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
