A pair of lifetime .300 hitters donned this beautiful wool road Detroit Tigers uniform, whose distinct style began in 1952. It was also the last year for the style of MacGregor Goldsmith tagging found in the collar of the jersey, thus, both the jersey and pants are from 1952, the last season Hall of Fame third baseman George Kell played with the club, albeit partially. After he was traded to the Red Sox the first week of June, Johnny Pesky took the number 7, thus it is possible that the fellow infielder also wore this uniform. The jersey is a size 42 and both players were about the same size. It contains the all-original "Detroit" on the front in black on orange felt and all-original number "7" on the back in black on orange felt. The jersey is graded an 8 by MEARS with one point deducted for a trimmed tail and one point deducted for some minor stains. Comes with matching pants that have a MacGregor Goldsmith size 36 tag in the waist along with "7" sewn on a swatch. Both the jersey and pants show nice, consistent use.
