    Description

    1977-79 Jose Cruz Game Worn Houston Astros Jersey. Nobody else will wear the number "25" for the Houston Astros. Jose Cruz made sure of that. Collectors flock to those rainbow knits of the 1970's and '80's and this one should get the solid bidding. Cruz wore this "Sand Knit" jersey during the latter portion of the 1970's. The team name and Astros star are screened on while the numbers on back are in two-color tackle twill. Great use is shown throughout. The nameplate has been removed from the back. An Astros exclusivity tag is glued in the tail. Remnants of another label are visible. The sides appear custom cut, most likely a practice done by Cruz. LOA from Heritage Auctions.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
