1993 Nitschke Football Sweater
Raymond Ernest Nitschke was a professional American football middle linebacker who spent his entire 15-year NFL career with the Green Bay Packers. 'Never wore an earring' became his catchphrase when it was used in a review back in 2000: 'Nitschke wasn't a great physical specimen, didn't hit dingers or sport a 1.25 goals per-game average. He couldn't slam dunk, throw 60-yard bombs or perform bicycle kicks. He never wore a "do" or an earring. Any jewellery he wore had sentimental value.' Highlighting how down-to-earth he was, this phrase became iconic.
Grey sweater in a crewneck style with a large football print on the front. 'Nischke never wore an earring' is printed in large letters across the front, dated 1993 below. Pair with red plaid slacks and airforce 1s for a trendy fit!
Yellow/brown discolouring on both cuffs and on front of print. Discolouring along neckline. Has signs of wear consistent with age.
This hand-picked vintage item is a one-off, so get it or regret it!
