    Circa 1986-87 Walter Payton Game Worn Jersey. Owned and operated by the inimitable Sweetness during the closing seasons of his Hall of Fame career, this navy mesh Bears gamer rates among the most desirable gamers of the last quarter century. Unmistakable at first glance, the orange and white number "34" and George Halas memorial monogram transport us back to the days of "The Super Bowl Shuffle" when Chicago was the capital of the football world. Rear nameplate, noted as ever so slightly darker than the rest of the jersey, features "Payton" screened in proper white and orange paint. Wear is light, though authenticator Bushing notes "numerous properly placed hit marks on jersey." Tail tagging reads "Wilson [size] 46," not uncommon for Payton when needing extra room inside his jersey for cold weather games. A blue sharpie signature on verso shows some hazing, but provides Payton's own seal of approval. Final grade is A6. LOA from Dave Bushing. LOA from Lou Lampson. LOA from PSA/DNA (autograph). LOA from James Spence Authentication (autograph).
