1970 Al Kaline Signed  Detroit Tigers Home Jersey Graded A 10

1970 Al Kaline Signed Detroit Tigers Home Jersey Graded A 10

"There's a hitter. In my book he's the greatest right-handed hitter in the league," Ted Williams said about Al Kaline in 1955. "I wouldn't trade him for Mantle OR Mays," said Bob Scheffing, who managed Kaline from 1961-1963. Al Kaline played his entire career with the Detroit Tigers, from 1953-1974, and this Post-War Hall of Famer is considered to be one of the most popular Tigers players in team history. Kaline won a batting title at the age of 20, won 10 Gold Glove Awards, hit .379 in the 1968 World Series, and reached the coveted 3000 hit mark despite several nagging injuries in his career. In 1980, he became just the tenth player elected to the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility, and at the time of his retirement, Kaline and Ty Cobb were the only Tigers to ever play 20 or more seasons in a Detroit uniform. This all-original flannel button down jersey was made by Wilson, and has seven four-hole pearl buttons. It was issued in 1970, and has been signed in the collar in blue marker, "Al Kaline". The Wilson tag shows it's a size 42, with a sewn-in swatch just underneath that reads, " '70 set 2." The chest measures 22" and the torso measures 33". The "D" in Detroit has been lettered in cotton twill. The back of the jersey reads "KALINE 6". There is moderate use evident on the jersey, and the wear shown is consistent with Kaline's play and his position on the team. Kaline is quoted as saying, "The secret of being a good hitter is to wait for your pitch to hit, and then hit it." Mears A10. Mears LOA.
