Fall Premier Auction 2013
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
You're looking at a 2008-2009 Buffalo Bills gamer worn by running back Marshawn Lynch. Always running in what he calls "Beast Mode", Lynch backed up his 1,115 yard rookie campaign in 2007 with another 1,000 yard season in 2008. He had a down year in 2009, his last full season with the Bills.
The size 44 blue Reebok jersey has Lynch's #23 on the front, back and shoulders in white tackle twill with red outline. Sleeves feature Reebok patches and white stripes with red outlines. Sleeves also have elastic hem as does the bottom of the jersey. NFL Equipment logo patch is sewn below neck. On back is 'LYNCH' stitched in white tackle twill with red outline on blue nameplate. The jersey also contains the AFL 50th anniversary patch over the left clavicle that is featured on 2009 game-worn jerseys. The '08-44' tagging inside indicates year issued and size. What likely happened is the the AFL patch was sewn on this 2008-issued jersey and he wore it in each season.
Moderate to significant game use. Several blue marks on back '3' and right shoulder '2'. Grass/dirt stains can be found all over the front '23' numbers. Good display of rugged game use that only an NFL running back could possess. No fraying or pilling visible. Jersey is largely as-issued in problem-free condition.
It comes with a COA from the National Football League and PSA/DNA.
