Spectacular Cleveland Browns road jersey dating to the 1962-67 period as worn by kicker and offensive tackle Lou "The Toe" Groza, who retired as pro football's career points and kicking leader at the end of the 1967 season.  Groza played 21 seasons, all with Cleveland, leading the team to eight league championships.  Groza served during World War II in the Pacific Theater, then returned to join the Browns in the All American Football Conference, winning that league's championship in every year.  He was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1974.  

The well-worn size 48 jersey was manufactured by King O'Shea, Groza's number 76 is stitched on the front, back and sleeves.  Some minor areas of staining are evident, predominantly at the shoulders and armpits, and a few very small repairs are evident at one elbow and along the very bottom of the jersey, near the crotch snap.  Stitching is lookse in some areas.  Groza's name has been hand-applied in marker on the inside of the collar.  All the appropriate buttons are intact.

The jersey has been assessed by MEARS with a final grade of A10.  An outstanding example of a game-worn jersey from a football Hall of Famer; the first game-worn football item we have ever offered.
