Lot 683: 1969 Catfish Hunter Game Worn Jersey
Auction Date:8/31/2001 9:00 PM EST
Road yellow sleeveless model is a great early style from the Hall of Fame right hander. Wear is spectacular, though some of this can be accounted for by a second life in the minor leagues. This afterlife resulted in the "A" on the chest being removed, then replaced later with an apostrophe and the letter "s." This was done in error-the jersey only had the "A" originally. Other than that, the jersey is 100% original. Number "27" on front and back, with Major League Baseball Centennial patch under left arm. Tagging in tail is "Tim McAuliffe [size] 46" with "69" year tag. Signed in perfect black sharpie. Accompanying jersey is a framed display (13x20") with a signed 8x10" photo and a 1966 Kansas City A's payroll check endorsed by Hunter. All sig's are NRMT.
