    Description

    1980 George Brett Game Worn Kansas City Royals Jersey. The notoriously irritable Ted Williams was once quoted as saying, "I hope somebody hits .400 soon. Then people can start pestering that guy with questions about the last guy to hit .400." In 1980, The Kid almost got his wish. For the better part of the season, this regal Royal flirted with the fabled mark, even surpassing Williams' 1941 masterpiece with a five-hit performance on August 26 to cruise to .407. Brett's four-for-ten pace held as late as September 19th before he finally mellowed to his eventual .390 final tally. An American League MVP trophy would join his batting title and Silver Slugger on the mantle, to the surprise of nobody.

    Presented is a home white knit pullover gamer from the finest season of the Hall of Fame third baseman's career, one which would conclude with a Fall Classic appearance due in large part to Brett's enormous contributions. Solid wear and an unfailing fidelity to its original status results in a MEARS A10 rating. "Royals" is affixed in blue tackle twill script to the chest, with "G. Brett 5" on verso, the first name initial necessary to differentiate George from his teammate and older brother Ken. Team logo patch is present at left sleeve. Proper "Wilson [size] 42" label appears at interior collar, with "80" embroidered year swatch at lower left exterior tail. A magnificent specimen from one of the era's most significant figures. LOA from MEARS.
