    Description

    1976 Phil Niekro Game Worn Atlanta Braves Jersey. The most successful knuckleball pitcher of all time, with 318 victories to his credit, Niekro rode that crazy, fluttering pitch all the way to Cooperstown. With the market for knits at an all-time high, we expect spirited bidding for this "Wilson size 44" road Niekro gamer. Excellent use is showcased on the two-color tackle twill identifiers, with red anchor stitching. "Atlanta 35" is expressed across the front while the back has the retired number repeated. The collar includes a period Wilson size tag and is joined by a "76 44" swatch just below. Some staining, mainly concentrated to the front bottom, is visible. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
