    1972 J.R. Richard Game Worn Houston Astros Jersey. The second year in the Bigs for this hulking right-hander, though with just six innings of work in 1972 it's likely this jersey saw most of its use in secondary farm club applications. "Houston" on chest and number "50" on verso are original, but name on back in a modern restoration. Original logo patch remains on left sleeve, and zipper front is functional. Rear interior tail is tagged by "Spalding" with "72" year and "44" size labels. A solid example of this rare and collectible style, worn by a three-time top ten Cy Young candidate. Signed at lower left front in 9/10 black sharpie. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
