Lot #597
This blue mesh jersey by Reebok was worn by Julius Peppers during the October 16, 2011 game vs. the Minnesota Vikings at Soldier Field. Peppers was the 2nd overall pick in the 2002 NFL Entry Draft by the Carolina Panthers. He started the 2002 season with the Panthers and made an immediate impact. In his 1st NFL game Peppers deflected a pass, which was intercepted and taken in for a touchdown with under 2 minutes remaining in the game, in a Panthers 10-7 win. He finished his rookie season with 12 sacks in 12 games and was named the 2002 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.

In a career that has now spanned 12 seasons, Peppers has 118.5 sacks, which ranks him 17th on the list of most sacks in NFL history. He has had double-digit sacks in 8 seasons and has had 3 sacks in a single game 9 times. His 9 career interceptions, and 2 interceptions returned for touchdowns, give him the 2nd most of any defensive lineman in history. He has also blocked 13 kicks, the 2nd most in that category as well. Peppers is 6 times a first or second team All-Pro and has played in 8 Pro Bowl games. He was also elected to the NFL’s 2000’s All Decade Team. A spot in the Football Hall of Fame is all but guaranteed. In March of this year, Peppers signed a 3-year deal with the Green Bay Packers.

Sewn to the right breast is a Captain’s “C”. The 2 gold stars signal this was his 2nd season as a Captain. In the hem is the team stamp/hologram. The jersey shows nice game use. Shown above are numerous photo matches of Peppers wearing this exact jersey during the October 16, 2011 game again the Vikings, a game he sacked Donavan McNabb twice.
