    1969 Roger Staubach Game Worn Rookie Jersey. Like most other Hall of Fame NFL quarterbacks, Roger Staubach had an inauspicious start to his professional career. Six games, forty-seven attempts, one touchdown pass and two interceptions was all he could muster in a back-up role to Craig Morton. But Staubach's route to fame was unlike the majority of his peers in that he served in the US Navy for four years after his Heisman career with the Middies, thus becoming a twenty-seven year old rookie. The rest, of course, is history--six Pro Bowls, two Super Bowl Championships including an MVP Award, his effective scrambling, his comeback wins and his unparalleled leadership.

    This incredible football artifact dates to Staubach's NFL debut, making it one of the most significant offerings in the sport in recent years. Constructed from nylon durene, it sports short sleeves with ribbed sleeve cuffs which have been photo-matched to the season. The numerals are sewn on in requisite styling, with the number "12" on chest, back and shoulders exhibiting the Cowboys' famous serafed font with interior rope stitch reinforcement within the zig-zag pattern. In the late 1960's the Cowboys still wore shoulder numerals, necessitating the rather unconventional placement of the NFL 50th Anniversary patch on the left sleeve.

    The jersey sports the 1960's white "Southland" label in the collar, accompanied by a cloth "Size 48L" flap tag. The wear is light, but definitely appropriate for the quarterback position, particularly given the limited action Staubach saw that first season in the League. The gorgeous aesthetics and supreme rookie vintage ranks this amazing specimen as the finest Staubach Cowboys gamer offered to date. Consigned by a former Dallas Cowboys staffer, with his letter of provenance. LOA from Lou Lampson.
