    1973-75 Joe Namath Game Worn New York Jets Jersey - With Provenance from Former Jets Ball Boy. After keeping his bold promise of a win in Super Bowl III against a heavily-favored Indianapolis Colts juggernaut, Broadway Joe's place in gridiron history was assured for eternity. Here we find a Namath jersey that showcases classic white mesh fabric and screened-on identifiers throughout. Green numerals announce the unforgettable number "12" on chest and on the back, where "Namath" spans the shoulders on the rear nameplate. Number "12" is repeated in white on the green of the sleeves. The style and placement of the tail tagging pins the jersey to the 1973-75 era, with a "Champion [size] XL" tag in the tail.

    Consigned from a former New York Jets ball boy, who obtained the jersey straight from Namath's locker after an NFL contest of the 1970's, the jersey exhibits light wear throughout. Admittedly, it's one of multiple mid-1970's Namath jerseys recently offered at auction, but none of the others have similar provenance. LOA from former New York Jets ball boy. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
