    Description

    1981 Eddie Murray Game Worn & Signed Baltimore Orioles Jersey. Remarkably, despite being one of only six men with keys to both the 500 Home Run and 3,000 Hit clubhouses, Eddie Murray led his league in a Triple Crown category only twice during his twenty-one seasons of service to the Bigs. Both of those achievements--twenty-two homers and seventy-eight RBI's--came during the strike-shortened season of 1981 from which this home white knit derives.

    The button-front beauty appears in classic Baltimore style, with "Orioles 33" applied to chest in orange-on-black tackle twill, flipping to reveal "Murray 33" on verso. Lower right interior tail holds "Descente" manufacturer's label with "81-40-22" and "Set 2" embroidered swatches below. We note that the jersey actually measures to a 42--Murray's standard size--and that these small inconsistencies are common for the brand.

    Strong game wear suggests the strong possibilty that the shirt was carried over for use during the 1982 season. A black sharpie signature at right chest rates a perfect 10/10. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
