Tim Ireland was originally selected in the 25th round of the 1973 Major League Baseball draft by the Montreal Expos. He was released by Montreal in April 1975, and over the next four seasons was under contract to five different organizations, ending up with the Royals in May 1977. He spent four more seasons with the Royals organization before making it to the majors in 1981, when he played four games at first base without coming to bat. He did score one run that season as a pinch runner. In 1982 he played in 7 additional games, including a pair of starts in right field, going 1-for-7 at the plate.
Presented is a Kansas City Royals Tim Ireland game worn jersey from 1982. The jersey is manufactured by Wilson as evident by the manufacturers tag in the rear collar and is period correct for an offering from 1982. This would be the last year of this pullover style as the Royals went to a button down front in 1983. The verso of the jersey features the name “IRELAND” sewn onto the jersey in white with individual letters and not to a plate.
The front has the team name “KANSAS CITY” across the chest in white and a Royals patch is on the left sleeve. The year annotation of “82” chain stitched onto a knit fabric swatch in the lower left tail is also period correct. The use and wear to the jersey is heavy with notable soiling remnants on the front. It was given an outstanding A9 grade by Mears during authentication.
