One year before he threw his perfect game against Toronto, Len Barker wore this road jersey for the Indians. That season, the right-hander enjoyed career highs of 19 wins and 187 strikeouts that summer as the ace of a 79-81 Cleveland club. The grey, V-neck pullover top reads "CLEVELAND" on the front with Rawlings size 46 - Set 1 1980 tagging on the outer tail. "BARKER 31" is on the verso, and there's a Chief Wahoo patch on the left shoulder. Shows excellent use. Barker would go on to retire all 27 Blue Jays he faced on May 15, 1981. At the time, it was just the 10th Perfect Game in Major League history.
