Fall Premier Auction 2013
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
This classic Denver Broncos throwback (circa 1961) complete uniform, including jersey, pants and socks, was worn by All-Pro cornerback Champ Bailey in an October 11, 2009 home game vs. the New England Patriots. The Broncos beat the Patriots 20-17 in an overtime thriller. Bailey, tasked with covering the opposition's top receiver, blanketed Randy Moss in this one to the tune of one catch for 36 yards. There is no visible staining from the grass of Invesco Field on Bailey's size 44 A gold jersey with brown tackle twill numbering, indicative of the lack of connections between Moss and Tom Brady on that day. The most noticeable point of wear is significant fraying near the V-neck, perhaps from Moss trying to gain separation with one of his patented push-offs. AFL 50th anniversary patch is in pristine condition. The size 30 Reebok brown pants with gold stripes have a long dirt/grass stain running down the gold stripes on the right side. The black and gold socks show wear on the toes and heels, and seem to have been laundered. All the appropriate tagging is present on the Reebok jersey, including "09-44" and "A" tags on the collar. Jersey, pants and socks are in essentially problem-free condition. Includes tagging on the inside of the waistband from J.O. Sports attesting to game use in the 10/11/2009 game against the Patriots.
Comes with LOA from the Denver Broncos.
