Default $ Reward for 1992 Elway jersey photo match

I am offering a $50 reward if someone can give me a 100% photo match of this 1992 game used jersey. I know that it is 100% authentic I would just really like a photo of him wearing because I am getting it framed and would love to have a pic of him within the frame. I can provide better pictures or different angles if needed.

I am hitting up all the Broncos forums in hope of finding a hardcore fan with a good photo database from this era.

Thanks for all the help!

Just a suggestion. Did you try to contact the Rocky Mountain News archives? I can't imagine how many game day images their photogs took of John Elway in 1992. They may have transferred and scanned game images into a database which you could access. Might be worth a try.

I've looked through all my pictures from that era but i can't find a single one of John wearing a uni with a booger on the front. Sorry.

He must have wiped it on himself in the locker room.

I'm not an expert but I thought game worn jerseys from the era were longer.

I have seen all sizes from this era. I am just guessing the longer ones that look almost like a dress are worn durring the late fall / early winter months and tend to have the hand warmers stitched in. As seen here:



Here is a mid 90's uniform from the Hall of Fame, as you can see it is about the same length as mine:



Also this jersey is by no means short. I am 6' and when I hold it up it comes about 1" above my knees.

Wait, so you want original prints right?

Otherwise, try google images.

I am willing to take either. I have scoured google images with zero luck. That is why I came here.

Had to have been a home game 'cause the jersey's orange... so a look at profootballreference.com narrows it down to: Raiders, Chargers, Chiefs, Oilers, Jets, Giants, Cowboys, or Seahawks.

"How much is the reward?" asked the guy with a lil over X0,000 images?

It's unlikely I have it, but back in '92 people didn't bother with cataloging images and attaching specific/relevant captions.

Also, knowing which game it is from would help ... a LOT!

$50 is what I am offering. Might not be worth it to some but figured I would give it a shot.

It would really help if I knew what game it was from too! It was origionally auctioned off as a early 90's worn gamer, I did the research to find out it was from 92.

In 91 the "NFL" logo was below the neckline, in 92 the NFL logo was on the neck line and the wilson "W" was only on the left sleeve on the side. In 93 the "W" was in the front of the both sleeves. So that is how I know it is a 1992.

I have no doubt about its authenticity, it comes with 1 LOA from the auction. 1 LOA from the collector who owns a store in Chicago, who is also published on his knowledge on game used Jordan items. and a LOA from JSA.

You think they never wash jerseys?

I am guessing the big stain you see is either a very deep grass stain that didn't come out or it is something other than grass. There is also a rip which is on the left of the "grass" stain in the middle.

I am guessing that they washed this one, stains didn't come out and they noticed the rip and instead of repairing it just used a new one.

I think I would need the 1993 one because it would be like trading cards where all the pics are from the previous year. I think I have it and the lack of pictures is comical.

Then just click the 1990s link on that link I gave you and go to 1993.
