See a Picture of this Item 110 Important Sid Luckman Chicago Bears professional model jersey c.1947. Incredible relic from one of the greatest players in NFL history whose accolades include MVP award, five time All-Pro, four time championship winner with the Bears, and is credited as being the pioneer of the -T+ formation. Luckman+s on field demeanor and pass accuracy were revolutionary for the era in which he played. Deep navy blue dureen jersey features the classic Bears orange striping on the sleeves with brilliant -42+ in high sheen satin twill affixed to the front and back. Evident use is visible throughout inclusive of two period team repairs to the back of the jerseys found in the area of the numbers. Appropriate -May & Halas, Chicago+ tagging remains affixed within the tail along with -44+ size and -Dry Clean Only+ flag tags. Based on comparison to period imagery the jersey appears to specifically date to the 1947 era and is consistent in every respect as it applies to numeral fonts and manufacture. It should be noted that the #42 was a team issued and applied number change from a period #12. This was a common practice during the 1940s era and was likely due to its original issuance to Walt Lamb for the 1947 season and did not make the team. Lamb+s size was almost identical to Luckman further explaining the selection of this particular shirt to have then been issued to Luckman. According to family history, the offered jersey originated from the President of Interstate United, a food service company which specialized in volume feeding. After his football career, Luckman served as an executive with Cellu-Craft Products - a plastic wrap company. Luckman was a supplier to Interstate United. The gentleman and Luckman became friends through work and gave the offered jersey to him as a token of appreciation. The connection between the two men is further corroborated within a period banquet program from 1975 honoring the gentleman. Luckman was on the board of directors. Interestingly there are a few areas of white paint spots on the shirt which were comically explained by Luckman himself to the original recipient as due to the fact he had wore the jersey while painting. These minor paint spots were left intact to preserve its original presentation but could be professionally removed if so desired. Superb and extremely scarce Luckman game jersey is one of only a scant handful in existence and ranks as one of the more important jerseys of its type to have entered the marketplace.

See a Picture of this Item 178 Exceptional Jim Brown Cleveland Browns professional model jersey c.1962-1965. Jim Brown+s relatively brief career of nine years as a running back with the Cleveland Browns concluded abruptly at the age of 30 when he walked away from the game at the pinnacle of his abilities. The records he amassed during that period are staggering: 12,312 rushing yards; 15,459 combined yards; four-time MVP award winner; and Pro Bowl team member for each of his nine seasons. While Brown+s statistical accomplishments are notable, his style of play is arguably his most storied attribute. Jim Brown delivered a flat out punishment to opposing teams, brutalizing their defenses. Opposing players and coaching staff alike would plan to key in on Brown, but to no avail. He seemingly welcomed the challenge and excelled in every aspect of the game. Widely regarded as the finest player in NFL history, offerings of Brown+s game worn materials rarely occur and are highly significant. The origins of the offered jersey can be traced to the Cleveland Browns longtime trainer, Leo Murphy, who became the football team+s head athletic trainer in 1950. He had previously worked as an athletic trainer for the Chicago Rockets and the New York Yankees of the All-American Conference before joining the Browns. This specific jersey was obtained directly by Leo Murphy+s son, Martin Murphy, in the mid-1960s. Young Martin Murphy worked for the Cleveland Browns at their training camps in Hiram, Ohio. One of his duties before the rookies and the returning veterans reported for camp was to unpack all of the equipment and sort it out for each individual player. According to family history Murphy notes that when Jim Brown suddenly announced his retirement from the NFL, he was instructed to pack up all of Brown+s equipment. Some of the items were sent directly to the National Football Hall of Fame, and Murphy retained the offered jersey for himself. In 1986, Martin Murphy donated the jersey to a charity auction to benefit Multiple Sclerosis research. It should be noted that while most NFL jerseys from this period were constructed of a dureen material, the offered shirt is a lighter weight material, which has been documented to have been used in summer practice and early season warm weather games for NFL teams at the time. Furthermore, the use of cotton jerseys of this type was prevalent during the late 1950s and early 1960s. The shirt retains its original -32+ on front, back and both sleeves with appropriate -puckering+ to the corresponding interior material from wash wear/shrinkage. The sleeve numerals were mandated by the league once television coverage came into prominence. The jersey displays classic Browns striping on each sleeve fashioned in a brown/orange/brown/orange pattern exhibiting age and color fading indicative of very heavy use, sun exposure and more notably, wash wear. The notable difference in the tonality of the striping versus the coloring of the striping on Cleveland Browns dureen jerseys is also, in part, due to the lighter weight of the offered shirt, its susceptibility to fading from wash/sun, and the cotton+s interaction with the colors in the striping. The shirt itself shows incredible usage characteristics indicating very heavy use inclusive of no less then (12) team repairs, a un-repaired 2+ tear/hole on the back, soiling evidence and general surface wear. The original crotch flap was cut away in the period (this has been seen on other documented Jim Brown jerseys) with the original (6) buttons remaining affixed to the front of the jersey. Overall appearance is very fine, with strong wear appropriate to Brown+s style of play, while retaining an unrestored visual eye appeal deserving of a piece of this rarity and significance. Highly desirable and significant jersey dating to the final period in Jim Brown+s storied career. Includes LOA from Hunt Auctions: VG-EX ($30,000-$40,000) $30,000.00
