    Description

    1968 Dusty Baker Game Worn Rookie Jersey. Home white pinstriped Atlanta Braves jersey is quite possibly the first shirt ever worn in the Bigs by this four-decade veteran of the professional game. We come to this conclusion quite logically, as Baker was the only Brave to wear number "12" during the 1968 season. Typically one would find a player name embroidered in the collar of '68 Braves shirts, but the appearance here of the year instead, in identical style to the surnames found in other examples, suggests this jersey was an extra that would have been issued to the nineteen-year old outfielder who appeared in just six games that season. Scripted navy tackle twill "Braves" slants across the chest, with classic chenille screaming Indian patch on left sleeve. "Wilson [size] 40" label in tail would be appropriate for Baker's wirey build. Wear is appropriately light, and a few small stains at lower back tail cause little concern. An important piece from the earliest days of a great Major League career. LOA from Lou Lampson.
