    1980 J.R. Richard Game Worn Houston Astros Jersey. From his final season in baseball comes this colorful J.R. Richard 1980 Houston Astros pullover style knit jersey. In a light gray that almost appears dirty white, the jersey features the block lettering, screened-on "Astros" with a star to the bottom right, as used only in 1980 and 1981. The lack of a year tag usually indicates 1980, which is logical as it was Richard's final season.

    Jersey features a v-neck front, while the rainbow array on the shoulders, extending down to the sleeve ends, seems right in place for the end of the disco era. Nameplate is stitched on the back with individual midnight blue letters sewn on. Number "50" on back is in the same midnight blue, tackle twill style and shows some fraying on this size 50 jersey. Medalist Sand Knit tagging is glue-affixed as well as the wash/size tag. Minor staining is evident on the front. An excellent example of a short-lived jersey that evokes the era well. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
