    1973 Nolan Ryan Game Worn California Angels Jersey - Record Breaking 383 Strikeouts Season! Possessing more strikeouts and no-hitters than any other hurler in history, Nolan Ryan also started more games than anyone else except Cy Young and managed to win 324 games despite playing mostly for mediocre teams.

    At age twenty-six, and in his second season in Anaheim, Nolan Ryan turned in what was probably the greatest season of his twenty-seven-year Hall of Fame career. That year, The Express posted twenty-one wins, twenty-six complete games, and a 2.87 ERA, while topping the Majors in strikeouts, with 383, and strikeouts per nine innings with 10.6. Ryan's 383 K's bested Sandy Koufax's 382 K's, set in 1965, and established a new Major League record which still stands, forty-seven years later.

    The home white knit pullover, with midnight navy and red braided trim on the v-neck collar and sleeve cuffs, displays "Angels" arches across the chest, with "30" offset below, and "Ryan" on the verso (no nameplate), with "30" below, all sewn-on in red on midnight navy tackle twill. Meanwhile, the California State halo patch reside son the left sleeve with tagging in the tail for manufacturer ("McAuliffe Uniform Corp."), season ("1973"), size ("44"), and washing instructions. Completely original and exhibiting game wear.

    Note: During the 1970's, the Angels remained experimental with their use of player names of the backs of their jerseys, exemplified by 1972 (name on both home and road jerseys), 1973 (name on home jerseys only), 1974 (no names on home and road jerseys), 1975 (name on both home and road jerseys), and 1976-77 (no names on home and road jerseys).
