    1987 Doyle Alexander Game Worn Detroit Tigers Jersey & Practice Jersey Lot of 2. A veteran of nineteen Major League seasons and eight Major League teams, Doyle Alexander was an A.L. champ with the Yankees in 1976, an All-Star with the Blue Jays in 1988, and finished in the top six in Cy Young voting two times.

    Wearing the jersey presented here, Doyle was the image of perfection, going 9-0 with a 1.53 ERA for the Tigers in 1987, after having been traded for future Hall of Famer John Smoltz. The button-down road gray knit displays "Detroit" arched across the chest and an oversized "Alexander" arched across the verso, with "19" below, all of which is sewn-on in midnight navy blue and orange tackle twill. Ribbed blue/white/orange trim adorns the collar and sleeve cuffs with the following tags appearing in the tail: "Rawlings 48," "92 19 87 2," "3 Inch Extra Length," and "Set 2 1987." The jersey exhibits nice wear with fraying on the identifiers and crinkling on the tagging.

    This lot comes with a 1990's Detroit Tigers practice jersey comprised of midnight navy blue mesh with "30" on the verso and right sleeve, in three-color (white/orange/blue) sewn-on tackle twill, and a gorgeous Tigers die-cut logo patch sewn over the left chest. Tags include "Diamond Collection/Majestic" and "48." Also "13," "41," "49," and "Koonce" (Cal Koonce, manager of Tigers farm team in 1987-88) appear in black sharpie. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
