A fleet-footed outfielder who compiled 1113 career hits in a 13-year career with six different suitors, Texas Christian product Jim Busby wore this 1968 Atlanta Braves road jersey in a mentor capacity. In the style’s first year of a four-season run, the white flannel garment features twill identifiers, proper “Wilson” tagging and comes with a full photo LOA from Dave Miedema. Accompanying is a pair of 1968 road pants worn by Pat Jarvis, as well as a pair of stirrups and a belt. This lot has a reserve (estimated value: $900-$1800). More on our website.
