    1978 Tom Seaver Game Worn Cincinnati Reds Tour of Japan Uniform With Team Provenance. The Big Red Machine took their considerable talents overseas in 1978 and participated in a Tour of Japan series of exhibition games. With provenance from the Reds is this Tom Seaver Reds road "Rawlings [size] 46" game-worn jersey and matching pants. The knit pullover shows appropriate wear with fraying on the single-color red tackle twill identifiers. Captured on team stationery, the letter states this was worn by Seaver during the Oct.-Nov. 1978 series between the Reds and Japanese greats. "Cincinnati 41" is properly spaced on front while "Seaver 41" takes shape on back. Applied in the inner tail is a Rawlings manufacturer's label. The "Rawlings [size] 34" pants have two suspended labels inside: "Inseam 25" and "Set 2 1978." "41" is written in vintage black marker. On front is a circular Rawlings patch, most likely used for only the series. Letter of provenance from Cincinnati Reds. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
