    1991 Mike Mussina Game Worn Baltimore Orioles Rookie Jersey, MEARS A10. Raise your hand if you remembered that Moose sported Jackie Robinson's fabled number "42" during his own rookie campaign--we sure didn't. He'd switch to the number "35" to which he'd remain faithful for the balance of his eighteen-season career in 1992, so this is a particularly appealing rarity. And, certainly, Mussina's induction to the Baseball Hall of Fame last year has only amplified the appeal.

    The home white knit exhibits marvelous game wear from an abridged rookie campaign that saw Mussina debut on August 4, 1991 with seven and two-thirds innings of four-hit, scoreless baseball against the White Sox. He'd strike out fifty-two in twelve starts in 1991, returning the following season to lead the American League with a .783 winning percentage for his first of six top-five finishes in Cy Young voting.

    The offered garment announces "Orioles 42" on front and "Mussina 42" on verso in bold orange-on-black tackle twill. Lower left interior tail holds proper "Rawlings [size] 44" label with "Set 1 1991" flap tag anchored at right edge. A picture-perfect specimen in every regard, well deserving of its supreme official rating. LOA from MEARS, A10. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
