I found it odd that I couldn't find out anything about this player or jersey online. Detroit Lions # 73 'Longboy' . Can anybody educate me on who this player is or anything else about the jersey ?
Thanks

Think I figured it out, Looks like this was custom made jersey for Jalen Rose (NBA Player), his nickname was "Longboy" , I'll have to do more research and get the back story

Does anybody have suggestions on best place to sell unique items like this ? Looks like this is a 1 piece special made jersey. I would think it would be collectible by Detroit fans or NBA fans also

Well #73 was Stockar McDougle, a tackle in 2001 so it's got to be a custom jersey, I'd be interested to see whether it is for Jalen Rose. eBay is good, but someone here could be interested.

The jersey came from Jalen Rose, I just need to try to get some documents in order to show the line of ownership , don't have a CofA since it was just part of personal collection

Jalen Rose was born in 1973 , so I'm sure that is why it is 73 , and he is from Detroit

If you can get some documents then that will certainly add to the value.

I'm new to jersey collecting, Is there an authenticating company or any 'live auctions' where these items sell ?

There are authenticating companies who authenticate autographs, I authenticate jerseys, and this jersey is real. eBay is the best live auction site, as you probably know.
