Watch for my other items including more game used items including Pirates 70s knits from top players, Steelers 70s durene, “Batman”, and 1994 throwback jerseys, 1970s Pitt football tearaways, and more. This listing is for Omar Moreno’s Pittsburgh Pirates home jersey from 1976 his rookie year. NL Centennial Patch is original and unaltered. Jersey is tagged from 1974 because it was recycled to him as was common practice in that era. Originally worn by pitcher Ramon Hernandez with remnants of his original “36” still discernible. Hernandez was traded to the Chicago Cubs in the second half of the 1976 season and the jersey was then issued to Omar Moreno when he was called up, and the number changed to 18. Moreno appeared in 48 games in 1976. Size 42, slightly bigger than what Moreno wore when he started receiving his “own” jerseys in 1977. Not at all unusual though for the situation and given the number change and the Hernandez trade this was likely worn by Hernandez over the course of three different seasons, 1974 to 1976. Moreno actually appeared in 7 games in 1975 as well for the Pirates but he wore #24. 76 is considered his rookie year and he wore #18. Jersey made by Rawlings with the classic 70s knit pullover style as first worn by the Pirates in the second half of the 1970 season.
