This is an important game-worn Don Sutton home flannel from 1975, the Hall of Fame hurler who labored for five different teams over a 23-year career, with most of those (16) on behalf of the Dodgers. Sutton ended with a 324-256 mark and a 3.26 ERA, numbers that earned him his HOF nod in 1998. This snow white home Dodgers jersey is a stunner, with the distinctive "W. Goodman & Sons" tag on the collar with size 42 and the tag on the front left tail with "Set A, '75." As noted, the shirt is in super condition, save only by slight fraying of the red stitching on the No. 20 on the front or the blue lettering or number stitching on both sides. Sutton has applied his black Sharpie autograph on the right front above the scripted "Dodgers." This is another key piece in the archive of the great right-hander who anchored the Dodgers staff in the 1970's. The piece is enhanced all the more by a MEARS A9 grade concerning characteristics and game use.
