    1976 Tommy John Game Worn Los Angeles Dodgers Jersey From The First Season After His Famous Surgery. The kiss of death occurred when Tommy John heard a "pop" in his arm following a pitch July 17, 1974. That pop had spelled the end of the line for numerous hurlers through the years. Well, John would become the first man to have surgery which would someday bare his name. While a second surgery was needed in 1975, John was ready for the '76 campaign and enjoyed another fourteen years at the big league level. This historic knit jersey was worn by John when he was on the comeback trail. The jersey is linked to '76 because of the National League Centennial patch on the left sleeve. All of the royal blue identifiers are straight stitched and applied directly to the jersey. Sun fading and numeral softness speak to use applied. A "Goodman & Sons [size] 44" label is sewn in the collar. Overall, a historic jersey linked to a man who proved an arm injury didn't mean a career was over. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
