The Minister of Defense appropriately enough applied a biblical verse to this handsome game-issued jersey from 1998, his final year with the Packers after helping to lead a resurgence that has since turned the franchise in a perennial power in the NFC. A defensive end and defensive tackle for 15 NFL seasons during the 1980s and 90s after playing two professional seasons for the Memphis Showboats of the United States Football League (USFL), he was selected in the first round of the 1985 Supplemental Draft, and then played for the Philadelphia Eagles, Green Bay Packers and Carolina Panthers, becoming one of the most decorated players in NFL history. The two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year, 13-time Pro Bowl and 12-time All-Pro selection holds second place all-time among career sack leaders with 198 1/2 (behind Bruce Smith's 200 career sacks) and was selected to the NFL 75th Anniversary All-Time Team, NFL 1990s All-Decade Team and the NFL 1980s All-Decade Team.
The jersey is nothing short of sensational in presentation and, more literally, in length, running a full 45 inches from the collar to the bottom of the unique six-button crotch flap. Shirt has Nike tagging on the front tail and a Packers "98-46" tag on the back of the collar. All elements appear to be in essentially as-issued and problem-free condition. White has added a bold black Sharpie autograph atop his number on the back, adding the inscription "1 Cor. 13", a bible verse called The Way of Love - one of the more popular readings at Christian wedding ceremonies.
Comes with a letter of authenticity from Warren Moon having been part of Moon's personal collection for years.
