Description

While the results weren’t glamorous, Baltimore was abuzz in the mid-1950s with transplanted football and baseball franchises, both of which quickly were molded into championship form. In the realm of vintage Colts apparel, it doesn’t get any better than this 1953-1955 home jersey worn by lineman and University of Texas product Ken Jackson. The blue durene pullover garment features “74” sewn to the front and back in gray twill, while white striped patterns line the three-quarter sleeves. On the left front tail, a “MacGregor” size “48” label is accompanied by a wash instructions tag. Trumping its status as one of the earliest Colts gamers extant, remarkable game use is evident in the form of multiple team repairs attesting to the rigors in the trenches! Full photo LOA from Dave Miedema.

As stated in the Dave Miedema LOA, the jersey style dates to 1953-1955 based on the tagging, photos from Getty Images and Bowman Football cards. In addition to the full photo LOA from Dave Miedema, a MEARS sticker accompanies.
