    Description

    1986 Nolan Ryan Game Worn Houston Astros Jersey. Even at age 39, Nolan Ryan could set down the opposition with ease. The Houston Astros advanced to postseason play only once during Ryan's run in the state he was born in. If the ball had bounced a little differently, the Astros could have been playing Boston in the Fall Classic. Ryan wore this "Goodman & Sons size 44" jersey when he notched a dozen wins in 1986. Highlighting the right sleeve is a Silver Anniversary patch worn that one season. According to the MEARS letter of provenance: "Comparison of the patch to period images and an actual on hand example reveals that at its current size of 4.5", it is smaller than the examined patches... Due to improper patch being applied and light overall wear, this shirt was awarded the MEARS A6 grade."

    "Astros" and a star appear on front while "Ryan" is arched atop the verso numbers and applied to a nameplate. While Ryan wore a number of jerseys and styles in his Hall of Fame career, this one ranks up there for sheer uniqueness. LOA from MEARS, A6. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
