One of the more beloved figures in Philly sports, Tom Brookshier was a dominant All-Pro defensive back, an Air Force veteran, a mentor to the likes of Ron Jaworski, and a famed CBS announcer with fellow "Sunshine Boy" Pat Summerall. "[He] might have been the toughest defensive back of our era," reminisced HOFer Chuck Badnarik after Brookshier's 2010 death. "We've lost one of the great Eagles of all time." Worn by Brookshier at the end of his career, this creamy durene jersey features screened green numerals and striping, along with a "Champion Knitwear Co." size-44 tag on the front tail. Moderate wear overall.
