This very rare and desirable home jersey was donned by Detroit Tigers slugger Willie Horton in the 1972 season. It's practically impossible to find Tigers jerseys that are all-original but this one fits the bill, with gothic "D" on the front and "HORTON" and "23" on the back. The tail was custom-hemmed by the team, a common trait with Horton's jerseys, and it bears a Wilson size 46 tag on the front tail with "46 72 Set 1" strip tag. The button-front top shows terrific use but is still in beautiful condition and we can't stress enough the fact that these jerseys are rare in all-original form. The power-hitting outfielder went on to belt 325 homers in an 18-year MLB career.
