    1973 Ray Nitschke Game Worn Green Bay Packers Jersey - Most Likely the Last Home Jersey Ever Worn by Nitschke! Amazingly, and extremely historic, this is the final home jersey ever worn by the legendary Ray Nitschke. Dating toward the end of his career as can be presumed by the forest green mesh and screened-on identifiers, this Hall of Fame-caliber gamer has the proper "Sand Knit [size] 52" dual tagging in the tail, with "3" markered on the upper "Green Bay Packers Exclusivity" tag. The "[size] 52" flap tag in the collar is frayed, almost to the point of complete deterioration, due to multiple washings. In addition, the proper font "NITSCHKE" on the back nameplate is presented above the screened-on No. 66, a nice feature of this Packers exemplar, as most 1970's GB gamers surface in the hobby with the nameplate removed. Packers game-worn jersey expert Guy Hankel used photographic analysis to determine it was worn for part of the 1973 preseason, prior to his retirement before the regular season. The highly-significant and probably historic last home jersey Nitschke ever wore during his historic career, it is accompanied with unimprovable provenance. LOA from Rich Nitschke. LOA from Guy Hankel. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
