Offered is this New York Yankees home jersey worn by Jim "Catfish" Hunter during the Aug. 12, 1977, game against the California Angels. In the first game of a double-header, Hunter threw a complete game, allowing only one run in nine innings to lead the Yanks to a 10-1 victory.
The button-down jersey has the interlocking "NY" logo sewn on the upper-left chest in navy tackle twill, with a white strip tag in the collar stitched with "Hunter." On the front left tail is the "Wilson 46" manufacturer's size tag with a stitched "77 1" tag below it, indicating the year and set number. This tag is consistent with similar Wilson tags of that era. The reverse has Hunter's number "29" sewn on the back in navy tackle twill. The jersey shows heavy use with consistent wear and all typical characteristics of a Hunter jersey from the era.
