A Pennsylvania native and Joe Paterno product, defensive end Brad Scioli set ample precedent with 10 sacks and Hula Bowl “Defensive Player of the Game” accolades during his senior year at Penn State. Subsequently drafted by Indianapolis, Scioli wore this Colts jersey during the 2001 season, his third of six campaigns in the NFL. It was during that memorable year that Scioli registered the first-ever sack of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (September 30 at Foxboro). The white mesh pullover garment features “99” sewn to the front, back and shoulders in blue block-style twill numerals and “SCIOLI” sewn to a name plate atop the back number in like fashion. Blue-and-white striped stretch ribbed cotton lines the shoulders, white spandex panels line the sides, while white stretch ribbed panels line the custom-hemmed sleeve openings. The tapered left front tail is home to a “Reebok” Indianapolis Colts label. Accompanying flap tags respectively denote (size) “48” and “01” (denoting year). An NFL logo badge is sewn to the base of the V-neck. Of note is the unusual length of this battle attire, which measures 48 inches from the collar to the tail. The all-original garment shows light wear with no team repairs or alterations.
