    Description

    1991 George Brett Game Worn & Signed Kansas City Royals Jersey.

    UPDATE: The consignor has located a letter of provenance from George Brett, which will be included with the lot.

    Home white gamer was sported by the Hall of Fame third baseman during the season just prior to his 3,000 Hit Club induction. The knit button-down features blue tackle twill identifiers in the form of a scripted "Royals" and number "5" on the chest, and a "Brett 5" on verso, the surname applied directly to the jersey body (rather than a plate) as is proper for 1991. Team logo patch appears at left sleeve. Lower left front tail reveals "Rawlings [size] 44" label, and a "Set 1 1991" flap extends from the manufacturing label's right edge. Wear is minimal. Blue sharpie signature at upper right chest is 9/10. The jersey was originally obtained in an October 1991 charity auction benefiting a personal friend of Brett, an American League umpire named Steve Palermo whose career was ended a few months earlier when he was shot and paralyzed while attempting to intervene in a mugging outside a Dallas restaurant where he was dining after a Texas Rangers game. The banquet program for the event is included in the lot, listing this jersey. LOA from Sports Investors Authentication. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Letter of provenance from George Brett. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
