After spending decades serving as a Triple-A city - several as a top Yankees affiliate - Kansas City finally made it to the big time in 1969 as it was awarded an American League expansion franchise. From that inaugural season comes this all-original Royals home jersey, which is quite the scarcity. "Royals" is stitched in script on the front in blue tackle twill and the number 10 on the back in the same "royal" blue. This particular jersey was worn by slick-fielding third baseman Paul Schaal, who was left unprotected on the Angels' roster and was scarfed up by KC in the expansion draft, holding down the hot corner until George Brett's arrival. The original 1969 Baseball 100th year patch is on the left sleeve and there is a Wilson Size 40 tag on the front tail along with "69 Set 1" strip tag. The jersey shows use yet remains in great condition.
