2005 James Farrior Game Worn Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey (Photo-Matched to Four Games, Steelers COA)
He starred at linebacker for the Steelers for a decade, where he earned two Pro Bowl berths and was a key component on two Super Bowl winning teams. Home black jersey has mesh body, nylon-knit shoulders, and black/gold/white cotton-durene sleeves, with elasticized sleeve cuffs. “51” appears on the front/back/sleeves, all sewn-on in white tackle twill, with “Farrior” sewn onto the verso nameplate in gold tackle twill. Patches include Steelers logo on the left chest, the NFL shield at the v-neck, and Reebok logos on the sleeves. Tagging includes “05-44” stamped in black on white swatch in the collar. The Reebox tagging in the tail is no longer present but remnants of the blue stitching used to affix it remain. Exhibits tremendous season-long wear, including hit transfers to the shoulders/sleeves/back, fraying on the patches, friction burns, and approximately TWENTY-FIVE TEAM REPAIRS (all where they should be) on the shoulders/sleeves/front/back. This is what real NFL game wear looks like and it serves as tangible evidence of the incredible degree of physicality of the pro game. Comes with a letter of provenance from the Pittsburgh Steelers. Photo-Matched: Oct 16 vs. Jaguars, Oct 31 vs. Ravens, Dec 11 vs. Bears, Jan 1 (2006) vs. Lions (sack game)
