In 2004 three quarterbacks were selected among the first 11 picks in the NFL draft and all three will be enshrined in Canton, OH one day. With 374 career passing touchdowns, Philip Rivers leads his former draft mates Ben Roethlisberger (363) and Eli Manning (360) and the trio stands sixth, seventh and eighth on the all-time list, respectively. Big Ben and Eli have each surpassed 55,000 passing yards, but Rivers (54,656) is right on their heels and, based on his recent success leading the high-powered Chargers offense, he seems poised to pass them both up when all is said and done. Rivers has the highest QB rating (95.6) and completion percentage (64.5%) among the three, and is the only one with a TD:INT ratio better than 2:1. The 6' 5" gunslinger out of NC State still plays with the lovable passion of a kid in the schoolyard and will forever be a legend in San Diego.

Offered here is Philip’s game-worn Los Angeles Chargers jersey from a home game against the Cleveland Browns on December 3rd, 2017. Rivers went 31-for-44 passing for 344 yards and a touchdown to lead the Chargers to a 19-10 victory that day. The "Color Rush" blue jersey shows obvious game use with contact marks and paint transfers on the front and back number that allow it to be easily photo-matched. The shirt also comes with impeccable provenance from the Chargers and Fanatics Authentic.

Inside the rear collar is the Nike On Field manufacturer's tag [size] 44 with a "2016" flag tag. All elements of the jersey come unaltered and problem-free. Rivers’ No. "17" appears on the front, back and both shoulders in yellow on navy blue and white tackle twill, the same configuration as the Chargers lightning bolts on both sleeves. "RIVERS" appears on the back in yellow on navy tackle twill across a blue nameplate. His yellow Captain’s “C” patch adorns the right chest. The tail has an elastic spandex hem and both sleeves feature the embroidered Nike Swoosh patch in white. At the V-neck is the official “NFL Equipment” logo shield patch directly above the embroidered Chargers block-letters logo patch.

The consignor is one of the most passionate and knowledgeable Chargers collectors in the hobby. He has included five 8x10 photos from the 12/3/17 Browns game that clearly match this offered specimen. In addition, the shirt comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by both the Chargers' equipment manager and Director of Corporate Sponsorships in conjunction with memorabilia distributor Fanatics. Awesome gamer from one of the NFL's all-time great QB’s.

Includes Chargers COA and Fanatics Auth. (AA0017626) hologram.
