Here offered is an authentic and 100% original vintage Boston Red Sox, game used, road jersey worn in 1976 by 3rd Baseman, Butch Hobson. This McAuliffe, Size 44 (24 pit to pit) jersey exhibits wonderful season’s worth of game use. No abuse, no holes, no repairs. Nice puckering of numbers, still tight stitching, nice color, Not washed out! This was acquired from the personal collection of a former player in the Red Sox organization. This jersey is tagged 1975 but issued and worn in 1976. There was NO active rostered player issued #4 in 1975. It was already assigned to Hobson and ready for his arrival. Hobson gamers are super rare in the hobby and Especially in this style! From this former player’s collection, I also have a 1972 home flannel and 1972 home knit. It has been brought to my attention that the Red Sox did not wear sleeve patches on their road jerseys in both 1975 and 1976. After trying to find otherwise… Therefore, I can not explain why the patch is on this jersey. I think its fair to question the patch, but not the authenticity of the jersey.
