    Description

    1972 Jerry Reuss Game Worn Houston Astros Jersey & Pants with Awesome Patch. In his twenty-two seasons atop a Major League mound, Jerry Reuss won 220 games, was a two-time All-Star (starting the 1975 Mid-Summer Classic), won a World Series championship, and pitched a no-hitter.

    Reuss wore the complete uniform presented here during road games for the Houston Astros in 1972. The zipper-front, gray knit jersey displays "Houston" arched across the chest and "Reuss 47" on the verso, all sewn on in orange on black tackle twill with orange/white/black ribbed trim adorning the collar and sleeve cuffs. Tagging in the tail includes a "Spalding Professional" label and swatches for the year "72" and size"44." Best of all is the spectacular team patch on the left sleeve which features "Astros" and renditions of the Astrodome with atomic rings, all in beautiful orange and aqua embroidery.

    Matching zipper-fly/snap-front pants feature orange/white/black ribbed trim with "Spalding Professional," "72," and "34-26-10" tags in the waist. Also numbers "26" and "39" appear in vintage black marker. The jersey shows great wear and is completely original, except for "Reuss" on the back of the jersey which has been restored. While the font and spacing of the letters is not what the Astros wore on their road jerseys in 1972, the name could be easily restored to a more accurate portrayal if the winning bidder so desired. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
