During these pre-Namath early years in Jets history, the AFL team participated in the final sporting event ever held at the Polo Grounds and then debuted at Shea Stadium. This seldom-seen, 7-button sideline jacket boasts vibrantly green wool and trim with no fading. The MacGregor size 42 labels are located inside the left front tail. There is light staining to the "JETS" lettering and a couple dozen scattered tiny holes throughout, along with a 14" vertical repair between the "J" and "E." These jackets never have a name ID and were worn by multiple Jets players.
