    1972 Dick Anderson Game Worn Miami Dolphins Jersey Photo Matched to 8/19 vs. Bengals - Most Likely Used in Super Bowl. Dick Anderson patrolled the secondary for the Miami Dolphins during their historic run in the early 1970's. A College Football Hall of Famer, Anderson appeared in three Pro Bowls and even took home Defensive Player of the Year honors in 1973. The defensive stalwart put heavy use into this "Wilson size X-Large" mesh jersey during the 1972 season. Resolution Photomatching made a conclusive match to the preseason tilt between the Dolphins and Bengals August 19. Given the extensive wear, the jersey also saw action during the regular season and possibly the Super Bowl. Resolution's letter of provenance states the following: "Based on image analysis we also believe it is a likely photomatch to images from Super Bowl VII on January 13, 1973, but images were not clear enough to make the determination of a conclusive photomatch to that date."

    The offering shows great overall wear with a few unrepaired tears (one on the back left sleeve) in the shoulder area and at least one team repair. The numbers are created in two-color tackle twill and have excellent wash wear. "Anderson" is sewn to a nameplate in single-color aqua tackle twill. The tail holds a Wilson size tag. LOA from Resolution Photomatching. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
