The 1982 Houston Astros Nolan Ryan Game Worn jersey has been graded 11/20.
The jersey matches perfectly to all of examplars of Ryan gamers during this era.
Condition on the jersey shows definite use by the tagging wear, jersey softness, numeral puckering.
Modifications: Size is exactly for Nolan Ryan’s specifications. Style, and cut are also exact to Ryan’s specifications. It must be noted, that the Houston Astros issued a number change on this jersey for Nolan Ryan. This was something that was instituted by the team. All the tagging and wear was original except for the team-issued number change. It was necessary for our team of experts to review the stitching style of the number change ensuring indeed, it was professionally sewn. Number changes were very prevalent during this era as noted by many other player jersey’s obtained directly from the player themselves. After examining the number change the following was evident.
- Stitching style is zig zag
- Machine stitched
Photomatch: There is no exact photo match, however, the photo style is unquestionable.
Provenance: No letter of provenance accompanies the jersey. However, the jersey was presented to Nolan Ryan upon signing the jersey. It is not a practice with Nolan Ryan to sign game used jersey’s that have not actually been worn by him.
Tagging: The tagging is a Sandknit [size] 44 with an adjacent Astros Exclusively tag. It is year specific as the sewn-on swatch on the tail reads the year/size “82 44”. The size, dimension and placement of the tagging is exact.
Wear: Overall it shows great use with noticeable worn tagging and fraying on identifiers from washing. A rainbow of sun colors run from the neck to shoulders as highlights. Each of the identifiers is sewn-on in two-color tackle twill with the navy team star screened on.
It was autographed on the front by Ryan in black felt tip (“9”). Authentication: JSA Full Letter and Nolan Ryan hologram for autograph, 100% Authentic for game use.
100% Team Grade: 11/20
