Moss is somebody I would love to own a GU item from someday. Years ago the Vikings use to sell their own worn jerseys on their site and I regret not getting one of his back then.

Thanks for the kind words Shipp. This Moss is buried in some of the previous pages, but I recently rephotographed it. This jersey is a 2004 Moss with Vikings team letter. The jersey has single game use I believe and has been washed. It is easily photomatched against the Jaguars where he caught a TD in the back of the endzone. Even after washing, the front numeral markings and loose thread on the "4" matchup nicely. This was my first big football purchase and is displayed next to my Carter jersey.

Photo-matches for my 1995 away Jerry Rice gamer worn 12-24-1995 vs Atlanta when he broke the all-time receptions record held by Art Monk as well as the single season receiving yards record with 1848.

It is also the ONLY game in which he threw a TD pass in his career!

Matches include:

the manner in which the nameplate is attached and how it forms an arch along the bottom

small hole on back of right sleeve

placement of Wilson shields on both sleeves.

The 1995 season was the only time that the Wilson shield was worn on players sleeves. The shields were worn seemingly at random, with some players sporting them and others not, in the same game. They were placed in various locations in relationship to the numbers. With this jersey they are placed slightly lower than the top of the #s. I have looked at the other away games in which Rice had the shields and there are two other games (Saints, Colts) in which the shields are similarly aligned. The mesh pattern inside the front 8, from the Colts game, does not match the pattern of the 12-24-95 shirt. I have yet to watch the 49er-Saints game to determine if the same shirt was worn in both games yet.

Loose threads on the lower right corner of the nameplate

Loose thread on C in RICE

The loose thread images I need to resize in order to post but here are the others. Please let me know what everyone thinks!

Always buying 49ers game worn and ALL 1994 49er GU items.

Great detective work on the photo-matching.

How do you find the time to do all that? My wife would absolutely kill me

I do much of the photo-matching early morning or after my wife and son are asleep. If I tried to do this amount of DVD watching, picture taking, editing and examining of gamers with them around, my wife would kill me!!!

I get up fairly early (4:30 AM) and usually read and look at potential photo-matches until 6:00 AM when I go to work. When my son takes his nap on the weekend, I start pulling out the gamers and taking pictures etc.

I basically use the small bits of time I have to do what I can when it comes to the collection.

Photo-matching is probably the most time consuming part of the entire process of determining if an item is authentic and if so, when it was worn. It has taken me up to an entire week to match certain jersey with little use and as little as a couple hours for shirts with distinctive hits, field paint or repairs.

At times my wife does get somewhat bent of of shape when I am in front of the computer, watching the same DVD over and over and examining a smelly gamer. I usually reserve those particular matches to when she is on call overnight.

This hobby can be extremely rewarding especially when a match pops up like this Rice shirt!

Always buying 49er GU and ALL 1994 49er GU items!!! Paying a finders fee as always.

Yes, I did sell a James Harrison with a pink chinstrap...not a famed but a very cool helmet. That is me playing against Josh Mallard. He was wearing his helmet from when he played with the Broncos. Very cool to play against him, tried to trade him helmets, but it was a no go, lol.
