    Description

    1974 George Blanda Game Worn Oakland Raiders Jersey. Born and raised in the fertile football grounds of Pennsylvania steel country, George Frederick Blanda holds the rare distinction of having played NFL football in four different decades, his twenty-six seasons of service standing as a record to this day. Presented here is a jersey worn in the second to last NFL campaign registered by the Pro Football Hall of Famer, one in which he was still setting League-leading marks (with forty-four PAT's in forty-six attempts).

    The black mesh Oakland Raiders gamer exhibits moderate wear from the ageless legend, and features the unique and desirable style characteristic of sewn-on vinyl numerals and a similarly crafted name on back sewn to a cheesecloth nameplate. Dual "Sand Knit" labeling in the lower left front tail tail announces Oakland Raiders exclusivity and "Size Large (42-44)."

    With fellow Hall of Famers, coach John Madden and quarterback Kenny Stabler, Blanda would help lead the Raiders all the way to the Conference Championship in 1974, a feat the team would repeat the following season, which would prove to be Blanda's last. While any jersey once belonging to The Grand Old Man carries undeniable collecting appeal, one deriving from such a dominant period in Oakland Raiders history demands extra respect. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
