This vintage 80s college jersey reps the University of Alabama Crimson Tide, featuring the #83 on both sides.  The name Crimson Tide came from an article written about their football team in a game against Auburn University in Birmingham that was played during a torrential downpour. Their mascot came to be known as the elephants after another article was written in the 30s about their game against the Ole Miss Rebels, when the rumble of the team coming onto the field was likened to the sound of elephants. Big Al the elephant became the official mascot by the 1970s. The team has earned 17 NCAA championships and 59 bowl appearances.           

Fits like a modern unisex adult small.
