    1979 Larry Csonka Game Issued Miami Dolphins Jersey Ready For Playoffs. It is hard to imagine a runner as hard-charging and tough as Larry Csonka allowing hand pockets to be instituted into his game-worn jersey. After a three-year stint with the New York Giants, Csonka finished his career where it gained shape. Issued for the 1979 season was this jersey which was prepared for cold weather contests. Our guess it was waiting in reserves for the Pittsburgh playoff contest 12/30/79 which was 25 degrees with an 18 degree wind chill. A nameplate was never affixed to the mesh pullover. All of the identifiers are heat pressed and the handwarmer pockets are in-place. A period "Russell Athletic [size] XL" tag is sewn in the tail. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
