    1972 Bob Lemon Game Worn Kansas City Royals Jersey. A dozen years after throwing his final pitch for the Cleveland Indians franchise for which he had provided all thirteen seasons of his Hall of Fame playing career, Lemon took his first steps as a Big League manager. Lemon took over the managerial reins after the dismissal of Charlie Metro at the fifty-five game mark in 1970, remaining at the helm through the 1972 season, though today he is best remembered for piloting the 1978 Yankees to World Championship glory.

    Lemon donned this "Wilson size 44" jersey during his last season at the helm with the Royals. The flannel button-up shows good overall use and has its identifiers crafted in single-color royal blue tackle twill. The collar holds a "Set 1-72" tag while the tail features a Wilson size tag. Three minor repairs are found in-between the team name and underscoring. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
