    1980 Fergie Jenkins Game Worn Texas Rangers Jersey with Jenkins Signed Letter. Fergie Jenkins enjoyed some of his most successful seasons as a member of the Texas Rangers. On two different occasions during his Hall of Fame career, Jenkins called the state of Texas home. This "Rawlings [size] 46" powder blue jersey was worn by Jenkins during the 1980 campaign. Heavy wear is shown with puckering on the two color identifiers. The entire "Texas" name on front has pulled away in spots but is hanging on as are the reverse digits (although not as noticeable). A Rangers team patch is sewn over the right sleeve. Two buttons appear on front - this was correct for the time period. The tail contains a "31 80 1" swatch while the inside features a Rawlings label and "2 Inch Extra Length" flag tag. A letter of provenance signed by Jenkins states: "I, Ferguson Jenkins have examined the 1980 Texas Ranger, #31 road jersey presented to me by... It is a size 46 with 2 inches added tag, manufactured by Rawlings. It is indeed the jersey I wore while playing for the Rangers in 1980." Letter of provenance from Fergie Jenkins. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
