    1977 Joe Namath Game Worn Los Angeles Rams Jersey - Photo Matched to His Best Game as a Ram! After a standout collegiate career in which he led the Alabama Crimson Tide to the 1964 National Championship under coach Bear Bryant and offensive coordinator Howard Schnellenberger, Joe Willie Namath was chosen as the first pick of the 1965 AFL Draft by the New York Jets. He signed with them for an unheard sum of $427,000 over three years, which was a pro football record at the time. In 1967, he became the first quarterback to ever pass for 4,000 yards in a season and in 1969 he led the Jets to an upset over the favored Colts in Super Bowl III, copping the game's MVP after boldly predicting the win.

    After a dozen seasons as the toast of The Big Apple, Namath closed out his career with the Rams. On offer here is his blue mesh shirt that he wore on September 25, 1977 during his team's 20-0 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. The greatest game during his tenure in Los Angeles, Namath tallied 136 yards passing with two touchdowns. The only photo matched Namath Rams jersey known, it has the proper Rams exclusivity and Medalist/Sand Knit size 46 tagging in the tail. In addition, a crotch piece remains intact, while hand warmers are present, as they were most likely added for use after the purported September 25 game. Showcasing a large team repair on the left sleeve, the jersey is absolutely perfect in every way. LOA from Resolution Photomatching. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
