    1997 John Elway Game Worn Uniform. Like the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1955, the Boston Red Sox in 2004, and the Chicago White Sox in 2005, the year 1997 finally ended the suffering for a Denver Broncos team that was often the bridesmaid but never the bride. The legendary Hall of Fame quarterback proved that the fourth Super Bowl was the charm, as he led the Broncos to the promised land with a thirty-one to twenty-four victory over the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XXXII. And so, while any uniform from this iconic quarterback's career is worthy of the greatest admiration, this home navy mesh jersey, complete with matching pants and socks, is a definite cut above. The navy mesh and dazzle cloth home jersey presents white and orange tackle twill number "7" on front, back and shoulders, with "Elway" sewn in proper white tackle twill font to rear nameplate. "97-48" embroidered swatch is affixed to interior collar, with "Nike [size] 48" label present in tail. The neck swatch appears to have been re-stitched and may have been lifted from another jersey during the manufacturing process. The matching pants continue the orange side-striping theme of the jersey, and finds hand-markered number "7" placed on either side of the laced fly. Tagging here denotes "Nike, NFL ProLine" with flap tags reading, "38" and "Short" with washing instructions. Year swatch is stamped "97." Finally we come to the socks, which feature a number "7" in marker at each toe. All pieces show evidence of light wear. LOA from Lou Lampson.
