Awesome MEARS A10 completely original 1976 Reggie Jackson Orioles game worn home jersey from his one year stay in Baltimore, signed by the Hall of Famer below his number on the front in 8-9/10 black felt tip pen. Knowing that free agency was coming after the 1976 baseball season and realizing that he would not be able to keep his star right fielder after that, owner Charlie Finley traded Jackson, minor leaguer Bill Van Bommell and Ken Holtzman to the Baltimore Orioles for Don Baylor, Mike Torrez, and Paul Mitchell on April 2, 1976. Jackson had a solid .277, 27 HR, 91 RBI season during his one year layover before joining the Yankees in 1977. "Rawlings size 42", "1976", and "Set 1" tags all sewn in the front tail. Orange with black trim tackle twill "Orioles" and "9" on front chest with "R. Jackson" and "9" on the back. Black, white, and orange trim at neck and on both sleeves. All buttons original. Jersey exhibits consistent heavy use. Beautiful condition, completely original, Orioles jersey belonging to Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson from his one and only year in Baltimore.
LOA from MEARS with a perfect A10 Grade.
Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
