Description1986 Jerry Rice Game Worn NFC Pro Bowl Jersey - Rookie Season! "There is a kid out there in San Francisco who will make everyone forget about every other receiver," - Don Hutson, 1986
While the mantle of greatest football player of all-time is still up for grabs, the G.OA.T. debate for receivers was decided long ago in unanimous agreement and then set in stone.
Jerry Rice caught more passes for more yards and more touchdowns, in both the regular season and post season, than any receiver in history. He was a three-time Super Bowl champion, Super Bowl MVP, regular season MVP, and a unanimous selection to the NFL's 100thh Anniversary All-Time Team.
Offered here is a rare prize, the first of the thirteen jerseys which he wore in the Pro Bowl. What's more, it dates from his rookie season. The blue v-neck mesh with white and red sleeve stripes announces "National 80" on the front, "Rice 80" on the verso, and "80" on the sleeves, all screened-on in white. Evidence of game wear, in the form of red paint transfer marks, can be seen on the right sleeve "80" and front "0" and there shirt has reports a "Russell Athletic 44" manufacturer's label and a fabric content flap tag in the left tail.
Guide Value or Estimate: $8,000 - up.
Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
