    1971 Syd O'Brien Game Worn California Angels Jersey. The California Angels' celebrated the final year of wearing flannel jerseys with an interesting adoption. Beginning in 1971, the team used a floating halo over the first letter of the team name. They carried it over into the double knit era as well. Syd O'Brien wore this "McAuliffe size 44" jersey when the Angels were on the road in '71. The two-color tackle twill identifiers show excellent use and have sun faded a bit. When put to light the stitched outline of "O'BRIEN" can faintly be seen on the reverse - likely removed when the shirt was sent to the minors. The tail features: McAuliffe tag, "'71" year tag, size and "O'Brien" chainstitched to a swatch. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
