The four-time All-Pro defensive end Jared Allen wore this throwback jersey in an important victory in the triumphant 2009 campaign for the Vikings when they club took on a different look at quarterback and rode his talented arm all the way to the NFC Championship Game before falling short. Allen wore the shirt on Nov. 29 as the Vikings roughed up a key Central Division arch-rival the Bears, 36-10, as Brett Favre passed for three touchdowns and Allen did his bit with an interception that helped seal the Bears' fate.
The jersey shows significant game use, with dirt and extensive collision marks that can be seen directly on his No. 69 and on the shoulder pads. All elements of the jersey appear to be problem-free; the tails of this shirt are hemmed straight across the bottom with an elastic hem and a manufacturer’s fabric content tag denoting Berlin, Wis. Inside the rear collar is a white strip tags with “09-46" and "O." Allen's No. 69 appears on the front, back and on both shoulders in white tackle twill. Allen appears across the back in white tackle twill on and purple nameplate. The sleeves are custom with an elastic spandex hem and each feature the Reebok logo patch above the screened white and gold vinyl striping. At the V-neck is the “NFL Equipment” logo shield patch. A strip tag affixed to the inside of the front tail carries the J.O. Sports hologram attesting to the game usage on Nov. 29, 2009 at Minneapolis.
Comes with a Letter of Authenticity from the Vikings.
