    Description

    Circa 1959-60 Bobby Mitchell Game Worn Cleveland Browns Jersey, With Pants. With an induction to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, place on the Washington Redskins' Ring of Fame and four Pro Bowl appearances on his resume, Bobby Mitchell is unquestionably one of the most prolific halfbacks in NFL history. Offered here is one of two Bobby Mitchell game-worn Cleveland Browns jerseys known, and it is accompanied by a pair of 1960's Browns game-worn pants, which are exceedingly rare in their own right.

    Admittedly, the jersey has some issues, but considering its extreme rarity it's hard to be picky. Cut up high to the stomach area, the tag no longer remains, but it is was most likely issued by the "King O'Shea" company. Sleeve striping is faded, but that is typical for most Browns "light weight" jerseys. Sewn-on brown tackle twill numerals are presented on the front and back, while eight repairs and a few unrepaired holes are presented throughout.

    The included Browns game-worn pants date to the early 1960's, postdating Mitchell's departure. Still a nice original pair of pants from an unknown Cleveland player, and they will make a nice display with the Mitchell jersey. Pants present the proper "Sand-Knit [size] 38" tag in the waist, with various markered numbers throughout. Serious collectors of the historic franchise will most definitely want to take advantage of this ultra-scarce duo. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
