    1979 Bruce Kison & Bill Robinson Game Worn Pittsburgh Pirates Jerseys. Distinctive styling instantly evokes those glorious "We Are Family" days in Steeltown when the Bucs captured the treasure chest filled with World Championship rings. This was a three-year style, but each is tagged to that ideal vintage at lower left front tail, beneath the proper "Descente" manufacturer's label and washing instructions label. Each bears the classic "Pirates" font and jersey number on the front, with the digits repeated on verso. The shirts were stripped of the names on back for spring training use, but their outlines are still readily visible. Each exhibits solid wear. A Robinson nameplate is included, but it does not match the style and is included solely as an interesting "throw in." Our consignor indicates that these jerseys were worn in the 1979 World Series. LOA from Heritage Auctions.

    I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with the results of the auction. Friday night was a blast. I had a hard time sleeping I was so pumped up.
