    Description

    1979 Dale Murphy Game Worn Jersey. An early career gamer from the Atlanta fan favorite is the highly collectible four-year style that the club sported in the second half of the 1970's. The home pinstriped pullover offers a patriotic scripted "Braves" and number "3" on the chest, with the digit repeated on verso. "Wilson [size] 44" tagging in collar, with embroidered "79" year swatch in tail. Fine wear is evident, certainly due in part to the fact that Murphy assumed catcher's duties twenty-seven times this year, with the balance of his 103 games spent at first base. The Murph might never realize his dream of Hall of Fame induction, but he still remains on the ballot and his two MVP awards, four Silver Sluggers and five Gold Gloves is pretty compelling evidence of his worthiness. LOA from Lou Lampson.
