    1980 Jim Palmer Game Worn Baltimore Orioles Uniform, MEARS A9.5. He dedicated all nineteen seasons of his Hall of Fame career to the Baltimore Orioles, becoming in 1985 the fourth man to have his jersey retired by a grateful franchise. Palmer earned three Cy Young Awards during his Hall of Fame career, and owns the third-lowest career ERA (2.856) of the Live Ball Era. He remains the only man to win a World Series start in three different decades.

    The offered home white ensemble finds the thirty-four-year old legend still mowing them down, a season characterized by an impressive sixteen-and-ten record with 109 strikeouts. The classic jersey design is instantly familiar, with orange and black tackle twill reporting, "Orioles 22" on the chest and "Palmer 22" on verso. Interior tail holds "Rawlings [size] 42" label anchoring a pair of flap tags reading, "Set 1 1980" and "1 Inch Extra Length."

    Matching pants are tagged, "Rawlings [size] 34" beside an embroidered swatch reporting, "22, 34 28 1 80," and anchoring another "Set 1 1980" flap tag. Moderate game wear is evident throughout, with minor staining accounting for the sole half-point deduction in the MEARS evaluation. LOA from MEARS, A9.5. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
