Lot #633

This home powder blue knit and mesh jersey by Nike was worn by future Hall of Famer Philip Rivers on December 1, 2013 at Qualcomm Stadium against the Cincinnati Bengals. Rivers was drafted by the New York Giants in the 1st round (4th overall) in the 2004 NFL Draft out of NC State, before a draft day trade sent him to the San Diego Chargers for Eli Manning and additional draft picks. Rivers started the 2004 season as the 3rd string QB behind Drew Brees and Doug Flutie, playing in 2 games and throwing only 8 passes. The 2005 season was much of the same, he was 2nd string behind Brees, only playing in 2 games and throwing 22 passes.

After the 2005 season, Brees was not re-signed by the Chargers, signing with the New Orleans Saints. Rivers was named starting QB going into training camp. He made his first NFL start on September 11, 2006 against the Oakland Raiders. While only throwing 11 times, he completed 8 passes in a 27-0 beating of the Raiders, Rivers QB rating after his first start was 133.9.

Rivers has now completed 13 seasons as the starting quarterback of the Chargers, playing in all 16 games in every season. He holds numerous franchise records as well as the NFL record for a single-game completion percentage (96.55%), single-game record for most consecutive completions (25), record for most consecutive completions (25), completion percentage for a 400+ yard game (83.33%), touchdowns between a single quarterback and a tight end (85 to Antonio Gates) and consecutive games with a passer rating above 120 (5).

He was the NFL comeback player of the year in 2013 as well as the NFL completion percentage leader that season. He led the NFL in touchdowns in 2008 as well as leading the NFL in passer rating. He led the NFL in passing yards in 2010, and the AFC in passing yards in 2015. He is an 8-time Pro Bowl selection, has a career completion percentage of 64.5%, has thrown for over 54,000 yards, has a TD-INT ratio of 374-178 and a career passer rating of 95.6. The Pro Football Hall of Fame looks to be in his future.

Proudly sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the Captain’s “C”. Sewn into the collar of this gamer is the Nike On Field manufacturers, size and serial number tag. Along side that is the 2013 year tag. The game wear on this size 44 gamer is solid with grass and dirt stains on the front, shoulders and back. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Rivers wearing this exact jersey during the December 1, 2013 game against the Cincinnati Bengals, a game that saw Rivers pass for 252 yards and a touchdown during his comeback player of the year season. A well-worn, patched and photo matched example from his future Hall of Famer. This jersey will be accompanied by a Chargers team letter.
