    1968 Joe Niekro Game Worn Chicago Cubs Jersey. Though he offered more variety than his Hall of Famer brother Phil, Joe Niekro owed a great deal of his longevity to the elusive knuckleball, a pitch nearly extinct in today's Bigs. This home white flannel finds the younger Niekro brother in the second of his twenty-two Major League seasons, showing heavy wear from warm summer days at Wrigley and a secondary term of service in the minors. The "Cubs" logo over the heart is a vintage replacement, the first one removed for the jersey's tour of duty in Tacoma. The number "48" on verso is original. The team logo and Illinois 250th anniversary patches at left and right sleeves are originals as well. Lower left front tail provides dual "Wilson" tagging denoting size "42" and "1968 Set 1." LOA from Heritage Auctions.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $1,000 - up.
