Offered is a Los Angeles Rams road jersey likely dating to Merlin Olsen's tenure with the team during preseason circa 1970-71. No manufacturer/size tag present though a slightly loose Medalist Sand Knit exclusive tag is sewn to the tail along with number 74 sewn to the front, back and sleeves of the white durene jersey in blue tackle twill. Exclusive tag contains "National Football Conference" language establishing the 1970 start date while the lack of name on back or signs that any was ever present & subsequently removed limit possible wear to preseason in 1970 or 1971 as the regular season game jerseys featured names on the back. Heavy wear shown with numerous team repairs. Olsen was a football player, announcer, and actor. He played his entire 15-year professional football career in National Football League as a defensive tackle with the Los Angeles Rams. He was selected to the Pro Bowl a record 14 straight times, missing selection only in the last year of his career. This record of 14 seasons selected to play in the Pro Bowl, consecutive or otherwise, is current and shared with former offensive lineman Bruce Matthews, former tight end Tony Gonzalez, and former quarterback Peyton Manning. A recipient of the 1961 Outland Trophy as the best lineman in college football, Olsen is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the College Football Hall of Fame. As an actor, he portrayed farmer Jonathan Garvey on Little House on the Prairie. After leaving that series, he starred in his own NBC drama, Father Murphy.
