    Early 1970's O.J. Simpson Game Worn Buffalo Bills Jersey. During his Hall of Fame career, few ran with the sheer grace of O.J. Simpson. Keep in mind, when Simpson broke the 2,000-yard barrier, he did so in only 14 games. If given the same amount of games as the other select few to rush for 2,000 yards in a season, who knows how far he would have put the record out of reach. While Adrian Peterson has dreams of 2,500 yards, O.J. Simpson might have indeed rushed for that many yards if he been afforded a 16-game schedule.

    While the teams he play for struggled mightily, Simpson kept fans coming back on the regular basis as they never knew what he was capable of next. Worn during the era of his 2,000 yard season is this white mesh jersey. We examined the shirt and found no less than three team repairs and numerous contact marks and burns from Sunday conflicts. Most of the punishment was absorbed in the shoulder region. All of the identifiers are heat pressed and the sleeves are ribbed, to give a tighter feel. "Simpson" is applied to a nameplate in single-color navy blue. This style of jersey was adopted by the team in 1973-74, but also appeared sporadically in 1972 as well. A lone "Champion [size] L" tag is sewn in the tail. While many only remember Simpson for his infamous "Trial of the Century" many gridiron aficionados will never forget the moves and electricity provided by by the Heisman winner from USC, one of the finest running backs the NFL has ever seen. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
