    Early 1970's Willie Stargell Game Worn Pittsburgh Pirates Uniform. Presented is one of the earliest "knits" ever issued to this beloved Buccaneer, worn during the productive center of his twenty-one season career. Heavily worn jersey announces "Pirates 8" on its chest and repeats that digit on verso, the black and yellow tackle twill exhibiting visible damage and bleaching. A large tear is found at right shoulder. Interior rear tail holds "Rawlings [size] 40" label and washing instructions tag. It should be noted that the jersey actually measures to a size 44, a discrepancy which is quite commonly found in these earliest knits. Matching pants are in far stronger condition, with a "Rawlings [size] 38" label at interior waistband above a "Stargell 38 25 73" embroidered swatch. Writing at interior pocket suggests secondary usage in spring training or the minors. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
