No screenshot, but Majors' team was honored pregame. All were wearing jerseys, but Johnny was sporting an original jersey of his from the '56 season. When I first saw it, I knew it was not like the other jerseys being worn. The announcers did, in fact, say it was a cotton tearaway from that season. Majors said each player had 6 jerseys for each game in the case of being torn away.

Tearaways made a great look back in those days. They were so thin you could see through them to the shoulder pads underneath.

Vol Coach Dooley wore orange pants in honor of Majors. They had to have them custom made in London, or so the announcers said.

He's been wearing orange pants all year and the tearaways you're speaking of are the 70s models. His was an original from '56. The pants were made from English fabric by a Knoxville tailor before the season began.
