    1979 Bill Madlock Game Worn Pittsburgh Pirates Jersey. Traded from the San Francisco Giants to the Pirates in late June, Madlock instantly became a leading force in his new club's World Championship run, batting .328 in the regular season and .375 in the 1979 World Series to earn rings for the "Family." Presented is a home pinstriped knit jersey worn during that important season, sporting black and yellow tackle twill "Pirates 5" on chest, and repeating that digit on verso. The name on back was stripped for secondary use. Proper "Descente" label is applied at lower left front tail above a "5 44 79" swatch indicating jersey number, size and year. Solid wear throughout. A Madlock nameplate is included, though it is not a match to this jersey style. Our consignor indicates that this jersey was worn in the 1979 World Series. LOA from Heritage Auctions.

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