    Early 1980's John Elway Game Worn Stanford Jersey. Exceptional and highly desirable "pre-rookie" gamer dates to this Hall of Fame legend's tenure as leader of the Stanford University offense, most likely used during his Junior year at the school. Wear is absolutely tremendous, though some portion of this could be attributable to a second life as a practice jersey following the regular season. The red mesh shortened body of the jersey is dotted with various team repairs, most notably at the top of the front numeral "7," at the upper right shoulder, and in the tip of the letter "W" of Elway's screened-on surname at rear nameplate. Strong, sweaty wear has also faded the "Russell [size] 46" label at the tail, further indication of plentiful use. Various contact marks and a few unrepaired small holes are likewise easy to spot. All tailoring aspects are as picture-perfect as the use, with Elway's preferred wide sleeves for ease of throwing motion and customization along the major horizontal transverse seam to keep the shoulder pads more tightly applied. A flawless collegiate gamer from one of the greatest quarterbacks in football history. It doesn't get much better than that. LOA from Lou Lampson.
