Presented is a rare home white pinstriped jersey worn to distinction by a man who Mickey Mantle called "the best ballplayer of my era." It happens to be the same jersey Aaron wears in a photograph with Mantle and Willie Mays as the Mick tended to his color commentator duties for NBC's "Game of the Week." The jersey was worn by Aaron in a 7-1 victorious contest over the San Francisco Giants on June 21st 1969 in Atlanta. An absolutely incredible baseball relic for the ages. Navy tackle twill spells "Braves" in script across the jersey chest, with number "44" similarly applied to verso. Left and right sleeves hold team logo and Baseball Centennial patches respectively. Interior collar is adorned with an embroidered swatch reporting, "H Aaron, 1969 set 2" while lower left front tail finds the proper "Wilson [size] 40" manufacturer's label. The signature on the chest is beautifully autographed in black sharpie. As amazing as Aaron's career is the fact that this garment shows evidence of extended use all while maintaining it's flawless and 'all original' condition that resembles the jersey just as it was photographed on Aaron's back with the rare and unique original MLB 100th anniversary patch and the iconic original Braves logo patch all in place. This is one of the finest Aaron gamers in existence considering it's iron clad authenticity and exceptional all original condition. The jersey is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from MEARS grading the jersey an A10, and photo match LOA's from both Meigray and Real Game Used (RGU).
