    Circa 1963 Mike Stratton Game Worn Buffalo Bills Jersey - Great Use & Rare Style. One of the best investment opportunities in our November Signature Sale may be represented with this Mike Stratton game-worn Bills jersey. If the standout linebacker ever gains enshrinement into Canton, this rare gem will appreciate a great deal. Known for his ferocious tackling ability, which helped realize six AFL All-Star games, Stratton is permanently honored in the Bills Ring of Honor. Stratton's biggest accomplishment came in the 1964 AFL championship game. With his team trailing 7-0 it was Stratton who demolished Keith Lincoln and put the running back out of the game. From there, the Bills scored 20 straight points en route to victory. In Bills lore, the moment was known as the "hit heard 'round the world." Worn by Stratton during his days in Buffalo is this durene masterpiece. Very few early Bills jerseys have found their way to the auction block. Excellent wear is exhibited on the pullover, and at least six repairs are visible. Heavy puckering is showcased throughout. Worth special mention are the white shoulder stripes which have taken on a bluish hue from launderings endured. A lone "Wilson [size] 48" tag is sewn in the tail. All four sets of numbers are in two-color tackle twill and "Stratton" is expertly applied to a nameplate as well. A white substance is also scattered across the front, possibly paint. The sleeves are custom hemmed for Stratton's comfort. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
