Jim Kelly Buffalo Bills Autographed Super Bowl XXVII Replica Jersey
Lot #451
This blue mesh Buffalo Bills replica jersey was manufactured by Apex One. Kelly was drafted out of The University of Miami by the Buffalo Bills in the first round of the 1983 NFL Draft. Since originally Kelly didn’t want to play in freezing cold Buffalo, he signed a contract with the Houston Gamblers of the USFL. Kelly was the MVP of the USFL in 1984 when he had 5219 passing yards and 44 touchdowns.

Kelly joined the Bills in 1986 after the USFL folded as the Bills retained his NFL rights. He played 11 seasons in Buffalo, ending his career with 101 wins against only 59 losses. Kelly and the Bills won six consecutive division championships from 1988-1995 and went to four straight Super Bowls, Super Bowl XXV through Super Bowl XXVIII. Unfortunately for Kelly and the Bills, they lost all four Super Bowls, losing Super Bowl XXV 20-19 on a last second missed field goal. That was as close as the Bills would come to winning a Championship.

Kelly went to five Pro Bowls, was a 1st Team All Pro in 1991, a 2nd Team All Pro in 1992, led the NFL in touchdowns in 1991 and led the league in passer rating and completion percentage in 1990. His #12 was retired by the Bills and he was enshrined in the Football Hall of Fame in 2002.

This blue Bills jersey, size 42, has the player name “Kelly” on the back. The player number “12” is on both sleeves and the back. Jim has autographed the back player number “2”. This Apex replica jersey resembles the jersey Kelly wore for Super Bowl XXVII. Kelly generally wore Champion but, since Kelly had a deal with Apex, he decided to use an Apex jersey for the Super Bowl.
