1992 Carlton Fisk Game-Used Alternate (Black) Jersey
Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $1,175.00
Chicago White Sox black alternate jersey worn by Hall of Fame catcher Carlton Fisk in 1992. The black knit jersey is lettered “Sox” on the left breast and features the number “72” on the right breast and reverse. “Fisk” is lettered on the reverse above the number. All letters and numerals are appliquéd in white on silver tackle twill. An embroidered silver “diamond” patch appears on the left sleeve. Situated on the left front tail are a “Russell Athletic 48” label and an adjacent strip tag reading “92 Set 1.” An approximately 1.5-inch cut has been made along the base of each sleeve, otherwise the jersey is completely original with no other alterations. Moderate wear is displayed throughout. Carlton Fisk is widely regarded as one of the greatest all-around catchers in baseball history. Although best remembered for his dramatic home run in the 1975 World Series, his career totals of 376 home runs and 1,330 RBI attest to both his durability and productivity over the course of his twenty-four year career. In 1990 he hit his 328th home run as a catcher, breaking the record held by Johnny Bench (since broken by Mike Piazza) and currently holds the record for most home runs after the age of forty (72). “Pudge” appeared in only sixty-two games with the White Sox in 1992, batting .229 with 3 home runs and 21 RBI. In 1997 the White Sox retired his number “72.” He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2000. Graded A7.5 by MEARS (5 point base grade, plus 3 points for the embroidered “diamond” patch on the left sleeve, minus a half-point for the cuts under each sleeve). LOA from Dave Bushing & Troy Kinunen/MEARS. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,175.00
