A new exhibit showcasing jerseys worn by from 41 NFL quarterbacks, including several from memorable games, will open Friday, January 6 at the Hall at Patriot Place in Foxborough, MA.
Some of the jerseys that will be featured include Joe Namath’s Super Bowl III jersey; Dan Fouts’ jersey worn during The Epic in Miami – a 1981 playoff game between the Chargers and Dolphins that ended in a Chargers victory, 41-38, in overtime; John Elway’s Jersey worn during “The Drive” in Denver’s 1986 AFC Championship Game comeback win in Cleveland and Randall Cunningham’s jersey worn during the 1988 Fog Bowl playoff game at Soldier Field against the Bears. Game-worn jerseys from Johnny Unitas and Earl Morrall to Sonny Jurgensen and Joe Montana are also on display.
“This is an incredible collection of jerseys that have been loaned to us by a collector,” said The Hall Executive Director Bryan Morry. “The list of quarterbacks represented is incredible and the jerseys themselves are remarkable. From blood stains to tears and repairs, the jerseys provide a snapshot into the grit and toughness of pro quarterbacks as well as the different eras in pro football history.”
In all, 16 Pro Football Hall-of-Fame quarterbacks will be represented in the first phase of this exhibit, which will eventually highlight iconic NFL players from different positions. Collectively, the 41 quarterbacks threw for more than 1 million yards and threw more than 8,000 touchdown passes while winning 11 Super Bowls in a starting role.
“This exhibit extends beyond Patriots fans and is something all football fans will enjoy,” Morry said.
Each of the first 13 Super Bowls is represented among the quarterback jerseys that will be on display as are 30 of the first 33. Additionally, 18 league Most Valuable Players are represented.
