Alan Page was simply one of the best defensive linemen of all-time. Standing 6’4” and weighing 245 pounds, “the Judge” ruled the NFC Central while leading the defense of his Minnesota Vikings.

During the time span of 1972-75, Alan Page never missed a single down of the 14 game schedule. With him anchoring the defense as one of the Purple People Eaters, Page led the Vikings to NFL Central championships in 1973, 1974, and 1976. He was selected to the Pro Bowl in 1973, 1974, and 1974. His career was capped by election to the NFL Hall of Fame in 1988. His uniform number was retired by the team and his number appears in the Vikings ring of honor.

Offered for this lot is a 1973-75 Alan Page Minnesota Vikings Road Game Worn Jersey with 20 repairs.

Supplied by the Sand Knit company, the tag style dates to the 1972-75 style (MEARS database). Other examples of Vikings jersey supplied by Sand Knit during the era include:

1970s Chuck Foreman

1970s Dave Osborn

1974 Grady Alderman

1975 Paul Krause

Therefore, Sand Knit was verified as being the correct supplier for Vikings jerseys during the era.

Size 52

1970s Pro Bowl size 52

1977-78 Size 50

Size 52 is acceptable and within the proper ranges for Alan Page Vikings jerseys from the 1970s

Game Wear: Jersey exhibits moderate overall wear to the body shell with 20 team repairs. 4 repairs are found on the left shoulder, 7 minor repairs are found on the left sleeve stripings, 1 major repair is found above the 88 on left shoulder. Moving to the right, three team repairs are found on the shoulders, one on the right sleeve striping, and finally one major repair between the front 88’s.

Page has largely signed the jersey on the front in blue marker.

Final Grade (MEARS A8). 5 base points were assigned for proper tagging, lettering, numbering, and visible use/repairs. 3 points were assigned for jersey having moderate overall game wear. LOA Troy R. Kinunen / MEARS Auctions
