Hoyt Wilhelm was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1985. The knuckleballer won 124 games in relief, which still is the current record for relief pitchers. He is recognized as the first pitcher to have saved 200 games in his career and the first pitcher to appear in 1,000 games. The eight-time All-Star won a World Series Championship in 1954. Wilhelm played until just shy of his 50th birthday. On the front left tail is a “Wilson” size “40” manufacturer’s tag with washing instructions. Inside the rear collar is a strip tag with “Wilhelm 1970 - set 4” embroidered on it in black chain stitching. Wilhelm signed below the strip tag in pen and in our opinion rates a 7 overall. Across the front reads “Braves”. On the back is player number “39”. These are done in the same navy blue tackle twill sewn directly onto the jersey. On the left sleeve is a Braves Chief Noc-A-Homa patch. The signature on the inside collar can be seen through the back of the jersey. This jersey is properly tagged, was presented to us as game-used and in our opinion shows excellent use. Magnificent all original condition. Accompanied by an LOA from JSA.
