Over a 22-year journey that saw him pitch for eight different suitors, Gaylord Perry authored a Hall of Fame career that was marked by 314 wins and a reputation for doctoring the baseball. Whether he actually threw the spitball or simply had hitters wondering if he did, Perry became the first-ever pitcher to earn Cy Young plaudits in both leagues, winning his Senior Circuit honor as he helped the San Diego Padres to their first winning season in franchise history. This 1978 Padres alternate jersey was donned by Perry during that memorable campaign. Unique like its wearer, this yellow knit pullover garment is a fleeting one-year style with “SAN DIEGO padres” sewn to the chest in brown twill, “36” sewn to the back and left front, and a nameplate with “PERRY” arched atop the back number in like fashion. Brown stretch ribbed knit lines the V-Neck collar, whose base has been cut to facilitate comfort (or perhaps easier access to perspiration). Yellow stretch ribbed knit lines the brown sleeve endings, while the collar’s interior features a “Wilson” size “48” label. The tapered left front tail features a swatch with chain stitched “36” and “78” identifiers. A 1978 All-Star Game patch has been removed from the left sleeve. This Hall of Fame gamer shows moderate wear. In addition to the aforementioned feats, Perry notched his 3,000th career strikeout in 1978 – two weeks after his 40th birthday. Accompanying is a full photo LOA from Dave Miedema.
