    1977-81 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. The reverse digits show heavy puckering so this was most likely used for a good portion of a season. Astros and Sand Knit size labels are glue affixed in the tail. Part of the size tag has been cut. The lower sides are cut about 5" from the bottom. "Cruz" is properly arched atop the numbers to a nameplate. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
