    Description

    1975 Jerry Grote Game Worn New York Mets Jersey. Jerry Grote survived at the highest level because he was a catcher of the highest order. His ability to manage a staff and call a game was among the finest of his era. The Mets fan-favorite slipped into this "Rawlings size 42" jersey when he was on the road in 1975. Extensive use is shown on the knit button-up garment with consistent puckering to the two-tone team name and both sets of numbers. A Mets team disc patch resides on the left sleeve end. Some of the blue material has pulled away on the upper edges of the back "5" numeral from extended use. Blue braiding surrounds the neck and button path. A lone swatch (42/75/25) is found in the collar while the tail is occupied with a Rawlings manufacturer's tag. The stitching has pulled away on the right half. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
