    1978 Jim Rice Game Worn Boston Red Sox Jersey Gifted to Tony Dorsett. Jim Rice was about as consistent of a hitter as there was in the 1970's and '80's. Year after year he put up gaudy numbers in front of the Boston faithful. He rightfully joined the Hall of Fame ranks in 2009. One Hall of Famer gifted his jersey to another when Jim Rice passed this "McAuliffe size 42" jersey on to Tony Dorsett. A signed letter of provenance from Dorsett states he received it from the Red Sox slugger. Light use is shown on the knit pullover. The team name and numbers are manufactured in two-color tackle twill and have frayed and puckered slightly. A manufacturer's tag and size indicator appear in the collar while year ('1978") and washing instructions labels are affixed in the tail. Letter of provenance from Tony Dorsett. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
