    Re: New Football Items

    Marcus,

    The getty photo's that you have posted are not from the 86 season. I know that is what comes up on Getty when you put in 1986. If you review other years you will see they are from later years. I believe the post date of some of the photo's are later. I believe on JimKelly.com there was a rookie photo of Jim.

    Re: New Football Items

    Marcus,

    This will be my last response to you. If you have a 86 Topps Football card set, there are 2 players Smith and Haslett wearing the skinny block font and heavy mesh jerseys like my Kelly.

    I have not see the away jerseys with the skinny font. I have not seen the open mesh jerseys with the skinny font.

    The head trainer at the Bill say that this jersey was a one year, 1986. I consulted with an aquaintance that has the best vintage Bill's collection to my knowledge, he says it is authentic and consistent with some of his 86 jerseys. Scott Lazzaro says its is real, see attached letter. I know you say your an expert but you are wrong here. I am happy with this jersey and really could care less what you think. I doubt that you have ever had your hand on one or more 86 Bill's jersey to form a real opinion, but you do have a picture book. I hope you read better than you write.

    Re: New Football Items

    What do you think of this from 8-19-86. The sleeves look like a thinner font, but the front numbers look too thick

    Is this the card you're talking about. It's a 1986- wouldn't the photo be taken in 1985?
