NFL Shop is stupid. I can’t get a retired number from them, but I can get one from the Bears.

The question is which one to get? My choices are as follows:

3 Bronko Nagurski
42 Sid Luckman
77 Red Grange

I have a Payton jersey already, but I wanted one of the older players. Suggestions?

How about Butkus (51) or Sayers (40)?

Ooooh Gale Sayers would be awesome.

This quote alone is deserving a Red Grange jersey:

I was interviewing George Halas and I asked him who is the greatest running back you ever saw. And he said, ‘That would be Red Grange.’ And I asked him if Grange was playing today, how many yards do you think he’d gain. And he said, ‘About 750, maybe 800 yards.’ And I said, ‘Well, 800 yards is just okay.’ He sat up in his chair and he said, ‘Son, you must remember one thing. Red Grange is 75 years old.’

That was a nice bit of plagerism on berman’s part of the ty cobb quote that he could hit 280 at 70 something years old.

Real vintage.  Just a jersey #, didn’t even have his name on the back.

Briggs is a kick-ass name.  You were fortunate.

These jerseys are pretty cool. It does suck that once a player has called it quits (because of licensing), it is damn near impossible to acquire one.

For an anniversary present, my bride of 9 years now presented me with a new Bears jersey - NAVY BLUE this time. And get this:

CUTLER

6

Of course when my kids are older, they’ll be watching Jay accept a yellow jacket and reminisce winning 5 Super Bowls as a record setting Bears QB. I’ll tell them how their dear old dad once groused over the loss of Orton and pissed and moaned over the acquisition of Cutler. They will look at me with complete shock and wonder what kind of drugs I was taking back in 2009. And then a coin flip will determine who gets #6 while the other gets orange #55.

But in all seriousness, the jerseys are great gifts. And I do plan on passing them down to the next generation.

Somehow.... I feel I am destined to be buried in the FUKUDOME home duds. Don’t see either clamoring for that gem.
