An elite offering from an elite competitor, this signed 1989 Joe Montana San Francisco 49ers jersey was game worn by the gun-slinging Hall of Famer in his record-breaking Monday Night Football performance against the Los Angeles Rams on December 11th, 1989. The following list of accomplishments, along with family sourced provenance, is why this jersey is one of the finest known Montana examples in existence: 1) Montana becomes the only QB to throw TWO 90+ yard touchdown passes in a single game. 2) 286 passing yards to John Taylor broke 49ers record for receiving yards in a game. 3) TWO 90+ passing TDs to John Taylor - the first and only time a player scored two 90+ TDs from scrimmage in one game. 4) 49ers clinch the division title. 5) Last regular season game of Montana's final Super Bowl Championship season. 6) Montana's first career 450+ passing yard game (career high at the time). White mesh jersey has Russell Athletic size 44 and 100% nylon tagging on tail, number 16 is on front, sleeves, and back; name is above back number, all screened in red. Signed on the front number "1" in black fine-tip Sharpie and dated "12/11/89." Nice use displayed includes sweat stains to the front of the collar, though it generally retains a bright look, a testament to his offensive line and a quick release. Considered by many to be the GOAT before Tom Brady arrived and removed all doubt, Montana worked his typical magic in the December 11th contest against the Los Angeles Rams in which this gem was used. Joe Cool lived up to his nickname, throwing for 458 yards (his 2nd highest single-game total) and three touchdowns, overcoming a 17-point deficit while spurring a 20-point 4th quarter rally in a 30-27 victory over the Rams. By way of provenance, our consignor was the original owner of this jersey who got it at auction days after Joe wore it against the Rams and it was presented to him by Theresa Montana (Joe's mother); the auction in which this jersey was sold was a part of a fundraiser for the Burlingame High School athletic department. Not only did Montana lead Notre Dame's Fighting Irish to a National Championship and a thrilling finale to the 1977 season, he then proceeded to win four Super Bowls without a loss, being named as the game's MVP in three of them. Comes with PSA LOA for signature.
