    Description

    1978 John Candelaria Game Used Signed Jersey. The Candy Man, as he was known, forged his reputation as one of the finest clutch pitchers of the 1970s. Offered here is a yellow Pittsburgh Pirates jersey from the 1978 season. Light use is evident. Candelaria has signed the front of the jersey in black sharpie. "Pirates" is applied to the front jersey in black on white tackle twill, as is "45" on both the front and reverse. Tagging on the tail reads "45-78," while official Wilson size tag resides inside the collar. LOA from PSA/DNA.
