1967 Giant Killers Jersey – Game Used!

The 2012 OSU football team decided to honor the 1967 Giant Killers when they wore a commemorative jersey during the annual Civil War game against the Oregon Ducks.  Fans thought highly of these jerseys but many likely had no idea what the real 1967 jerseys looked like.  This is a picture of the authentic jersey worn by the starting free safety on the 1967 Giant Killers team, Mark Waletich, from Portland’s own Wilson High School.  If you look closely you can still see the tiny stitch marks where they hand sewed the holes from the jersey’s battle scars from some hard fought games.  Here are also some pictures of a game program showing Waletich running behind Dee Andros and a couple more showing the players in the jerseys!

  1. That’s awesome! Thanks for posting this. I actually spent the last couple years working on my own “tribute jersey”. I’ll send pics once ready.
