1986 Barry Bonds Pittsburgh Pirates Game Worn Rookie Jersey-Worn For His First Major League Homerun

1986 Barry Bonds Pittsburgh Pirates Game Worn Rookie Jersey-Worn For His First Major League Homerun

Controversial All-Time Home Run King Barry Bonds began his epic baseball journey with the 1986 Pittsburgh Pirates, and he wore this gray road uniform early in his rookie season. The front bears the name "PIRATES" with the number "7" below in black outlined in gold. Both front and back show the equal wear pattern. The front tail bears a Wilson prestige patch with an "86" year tag. The shirt shows excellent game use and is all-original with no alterations. Bonds only wore #7 for a short time before switching to #24. Bonds made his big league debut on May 30, 1986 vs. the Dodgers at Three Rivers Stadium but didn't wear this specific road gray until a series in Atlanta on June 2-4. On the last day of that set, Bonds belted the first of his record 762 round-trippers off Craig McMurtry as part of a four-hit, four-RBI day in the leadoff spot. This historic jersey will make a wonderful addition to your world-class baseball collection. In 1986, the Pirates finished in last place in the National League East but the emergence of Bonds gave Pittsburgh fans a taste of what was to come as the Pirates became division champs within three years. The son of All-Star major leaguer Bobby Bonds, Barry later eclipsed Hank Aaron's all-time home run record while playing with the San Francisco Giants on August 7, 2007 vs. Washington Nationals pitcher Mike Bacsik. Despite coming under harsh scrutiny for alleged steroids abuse, Bonds continues to hold numerous other major league records, such as home runs in a season (73), Most Valuable Player awards (seven), most walks (2,558) and most intentional walks (688).
