    Description

    1970 Billy Williams Game Worn Chicago Cubs Jersey, MEARS A9. The single greatest season of Hall of Famer Billy Williams' eighteen-year Major League career is without doubt his 1970 campaign, when he hit .322 with forty-two home runs and 122 RBI and led the N.L. with 137 runs scored, 205 hits, and 373 total bases, all of which were career highs. That year, the Cubs finished second to the Pirates in the N.L. East and Williams was the runner-up to the Reds' Johnny Bench in the N.L. MVP balloting.

    The home white flannel jersey on offer here was worn by Williams at Wrigley Field during his magical summer of 1970 when he was at the peak of his powers. Cream-colored with blue pinstriping and a seven-button front, the jersey displays a large, circular "Cubs" logo (replaced) over the left breast in red/white/blue canvas/embroidery, blue/beige/white team patch on the left sleeve, and blue tackle twill "26" on the verso. Magnificent tagging includes "26-70-1-40" in black chainlink on a cream swatch in the collar with "Wilson 40" and "1970" in blue chainlink in the tail.

    Despite the replacement of the front logo, this exemplar still checks the major boxes for the seasoned uniform collector: Hall of Fame membership, peak season pedigree, evident game wear, and exemplary condition. LOA from MEARS, A9. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
