Jersey Monday: John Elway

You can have your Tim Tebow, with your fancy "new" style Broncos jersey (that's actually more than a decade old at this point). When it comes to Broncos quarterbacks, give him John Elway, orange crush style.

This is actually one of two Elway jerseys I own (the other is a Stanford throwback) and one of three Broncos jerseys I own. However, this is my only Broncos jersey from before they changed to their modern style in the late '90s.

Sure, the Broncos may have been a better team wearing their Nike-designed jerseys, but when I think "Denver Broncos", these will be the first jerseys that come to mind -- well, techinically something like this, since this particular jersey is a cheap Logo Athletic model with the TV numbers in the wrong place (they should be on the sleeve, not on the shoulders). The name font is also wrong, but that was fairly common in replica jerseys in the early '90s. Most manufacturers simply used the same font for all teams.

Jersey Monday will continue every Monday until I run out of jerseys to spotlight. And since I’ve got more than 150 of them, that could be awhile.
