Offered is an exceedingly rare full uniform worn by Hall of Famer George Brett during that historic American League MVP season, one of the most coveted of the "knit era." The classic powder blue road style will forever be linked to Brett, the block-lettered "Kansas City" arching gently across the chest. Team logo patch remains affixed to left sleeve, with "Brett 5" decorating the rear. The lack of a "G" initial on verso indicates the jersey predates brother Ken's August 11th arrival. Proper "Wilson [size] 42" label appears inside collar, with "80" embroidered swatch just below.
Matching pants are tagged "Wilson" inside the waistband, with the size a hand-embroidered "33." Just to the left is an embroidered swatch announcing "5 80 25," indicating jersey number, year and inseam. Both jersey and pants exhibit fine season-long wear with apparent tobacco juice spotting and fabric abrasions from fielding and base-running acrobatics. A picture-perfect representation from the most popular figure in Kansas City baseball since Satchel Paige, meriting a perfect rating from the hobby's leading uniform experts. LOA from MEARS, A10. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
