1966 Tommy Harper Cincinnati Reds Game-Used Home Jersey MEARS A7

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,410

Addendum: The printed catalog states that the name on the back of the Tommy Harper jersey is original and the jersey was awarded a grade of A10 by MEARS. Additional research by MEARS since the printing of the catalog has shown that this is not accurate. The name on the back of the Tommy Harper jersey is not original to the jersey. The name has been restored. The jersey is otherwise complete and original. The name on the back of the jersey should be navy over red, just like the numbers. The corrected grade for this jersey is A7 (base grade of A10 minus three points for name on back restoration). We apologize for any inconvenience.

Cincinnati Reds flannel home jersey worn by journeyman outfielder Tommy Harper in 1966. Graded A7 by MEARS (see addendum above). The white pinstripe vest-style jersey features the Reds team insignia (multicolor embroidery on navy tackle twill) on the left breast. The number "12" appears on both the right breast and reverse. "Harper" (restored) is lettered on the reverse directly below the number. All numerals are appliquèd in red on navy tackle twill, while all lettters are appliqued in navy tackle twill. A "MacGregor 40" label appears in the collar. Located on the interior left front tail are a laundry tag and a second MacGregor label reading "Set 2 1966." The jersey is completely original with the exception of the name on back restoration (see addendum above), and displays moderate wear throughout. Tommy Harper appeared in 149 games with the Reds in 1966, finishing the year with a .278 average, 5 home runs, and 31 RBI. He retired after fifteen seasons in 1976 with a .257 career average. 1966 was the final season in which the Reds wore a vest-style jersey (the team wore that style from 1956 through 1966). Graded A7 by MEARS. This is one of only five 1960s Cincinnati Reds jerseys listed in the MEARS census. LOA from Troy Kinunen/MEARS. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,410
