The first player in franchise annals to ever lay claim to a batting crown, Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn did so eight times during his career with the San Diego Padres. As he secured the last of those titles, Gwynn wore this Padres road jersey during the 1997 season. This gray knit button-down garment features “SAN DIEGO” arched across the chest in blue-on-white-on-orange triple twill, the latter layer giving a “shadowed” effect. In the identical color scheme, Gwynn's since-retired number “19” is sewn to the back and “GWYNN” is arched just above in solid blue twill. The left sleeve is home to a team logo patch, and the right sleeve is adorned by a Jackie Robinson 50th Anniversary patch. On the left front tail, a “RUSSELL ATHLETIC” size “52” label is accompanied by a fabric content flap tag and a “2” EXTRA LENGTH” tag. Solid wear is evident with puckering and fraying about the twill elements.
