Miami Dolphins home jersey worn by Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino during the mid 1980s. The white mesh jersey features the number "13" on the front, reverse and each sleeve. "Marino" is lettered on reverse above the number. All numerals are applied in aqua on orange silk-screened paint, while all letters are applied in solid aqua silk-screened paint. A "Russell Athletic 48" label appears on the left sleeve. The jersey, which features professionally stitched sleeve and tail openings, has been customized for Marino in the form of extra wide gusset sleeve panels. Moderate wear is displayed throughout the garment including a team repair on the rear left sleeve, a tear on the front left sleeve and contact marks on the reverse. Aside from the aforementioned team customization and repair, the jersey is original and unaltered. This particular jersey dates from Marino's early professional career, a period in which he established himself as one of the most prolific passers in NFL history.

Marino retired in 1999 as the all-time leader in passing yards, touchdown passes, pass attempts and completions. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2005. This jersey has been consigned to this auction directly from the personal collection of world-renowned bat and jersey authenticator David Bushing. Graded A8 by Mears, with two points deducted for the jersey displaying only moderate wear. LOA from Dave Bushing & Troy Kinunen/MEARS. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500. SOLD FOR $2,088.00
