Detroit Tigers home jersey worn by infielder Dick Tracewski in 1969. The white flannel jersey features the club’s distinctive gothic “D” on the left breast and the number “44” on the reverse. All letters and numerals are appliquéd in navy tackle twill. A Major League Baseball “100 Anniversary” patch (worn by all major league teams that season) appears on the left sleeve. Located on the left front tail is a “Wilson 40” label as well as “69’ Set 1” chain-stitched in navy upon a white strip tag. “Trix” is written in faded black marker in the collar. Original and unaltered, the jersey displays light wear. 1969 marked Tracewski’s eighth and final major league season, the last four of which were spent with Detroit. A member of the club’s 1968 World Championship club, Tracewski appeared in sixty-six games with the Tigers in 1969, finishing the year with a .139 average. This is an outstanding 1969 Detroit Tigers style jersey, complete with the original anniversary patch. LOA from Dave Bushing and Dan Knoll/Global Authentic. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,659
