Short Sleeve Football Jersey
They’re mainly forgotten now.
(Football was so brutal that in 1905, 18 players lost their lives.)
Baseball remembers its heroes better. Hollywood, seemingly in cahoots, even does remakes for them.
So it’s really up to us, a few old photographs and some books nobody reads anymore. And, of course, these terrific ribbed crossover crewneck vintage football jerseys. Any contact with them, and heroes will be instantly recalled (a secret process).
William “Pudge” Walter Heffelfinger. Walter “Eckie” Eckersall. Jim Thorpe. Gus Dorais. Red Grange. Bob Zuppke (“I don’t look for tackles, I listen for them.”) Many more.
Short Sleeve Football Jersey (No. 6960) in heavyweight cotton jersey. Note the vintage style yoke detail and sturdy sturdy flatlock stitching. Rib collar. Flat hem. Herringbone tape at back neck. Engineered "Stickup Cloth" stripes on the arms harken back to the early 20th century when players began attaching vertical strips of canvas, leather, or moleskin to their chest and arms to prevent fumbling. Imported.
