Floyd Little's Bordentown Military Institute Personally Owned & Game Worn Jersey - Worn by Little for 2 Full Seasons!

This is Floyd Little's game-worn jersey from his two years at Bordentown Military Institute, worn just before he embarked on his legendary journey at Syracuse University. This Wilson size 44 jersey bears witness to the 1961 and 1962 football seasons, during which Floyd achieved the prestigious title of two-time All-American at Bordentown. Notably, this jersey holds the distinction of being the only one Floyd wore during his time at Bordentown, and it's the sole jersey ever retired at the institution.

The jersey exhibits the wear and tear expected of a true game-worn relic, bearing numerous repairs as testament to the battles it endured on the gridiron. It's important to note that this jersey comes with a letter of provenance, directly from the hands of Floyd himself. Included is a comprehensive letter from Floyd himself detailing the history and significance of this jersey, along with photographs of him proudly holding this jersey.

What makes this jersey even more exceptional is its cameo in the film "The Express," the compelling story of Ernie Davis, who famously wore the "44" jersey at Syracuse. In a pivotal scene where Ernie comes to recruit Floyd at Bordentown, Floyd is depicted wearing a Maroon Bordentown jersey bearing the number 77. Remarkably, this very jersey was utilized as the prototype to recreate that iconic movie moment.

Lastly, Floyd Little is a three-time All-American at Syracuse University and an esteemed member of both the college and pro football halls of fame, adding an extra layer of significance to this already extraordinary jersey. This offering stands as one of the best-documented and most significant jerseys from a Hall of Famer in existence, a rare opportunity to own a tangible piece of football history.
